American Oak Xoakers


Xoakers can be used in barrels, tanks, carboys or kegs. These 1” solid oak spheres are perfect for the precise and uniform addition of oak to neutral barrels, tanks, carboys and kegs. Xoakers will contribute a complex oak character, rounding and softening wines while enhancing the mid-palate. Xoakers are simply added to the barrel through the bunghole, and then rolled back out during barrel washing.
