ABC Crafted Series American Candy Flavour Oak Pellets contains 3.5 oz (100g) of ideally sized pellets, perfect for small-batch winemaking. Maintains the wine characteristics with a combination of vanilla and caramel. The pellet oak format is a very useful and differentiating tool in winemaking due to the characteristic aromas extracted. Contains higher concentrations of volatile compounds and derivatives of thermal degradation of lignin, but lower concentrations of ellagitannins. The high glycosidic polymer content produces heavy smoked toasted, caramel, and roasted notes and significantly increases the wine’s aromatic complexity. Ideal for use in winemaking thanks to their rapid transfer of aromatic compunds at a reduced dose as a result of their structure, high porosity, and permeability. Does not contain artificial binding agents.

The oak's rapid component transfer makes them well suited for short treatments. It enhances aromatic complexity by transferring candy aromas. Preserves the wine’s natural fruitiness due to its slow, gradual transfer of oak aromas. These pellets are abundant in polyphenols and phenolic aldehydes from the thermal degradation of lignin. It has a high concentration of vanillin and candy, which makes the vanilla and caramel profile in the wine very obvious.

We recommend using a muslin bag to contain the oak chips while soaking for easy removal and ease of transferring.
