XtraMocha Oak Chips
XtraMocha is an ideal blend of French and American Oak combined with our special long and intense toast. Each one has their own characteristic and flavor. When these two oaks are processed together they create a unique synergy shown by a higher CaOx – Anti-Oxydant capacity and enhancing the wine fruitiness. Our proprietary XtraMocha recipe uses the French Oak to bring a spicier and toasted aroma while the American Oak rounds out the flavor with sweet aromas of mocha, caramel and vanilla.
