Winery Equipment Testimonial:

"Upgrading your winery from 1000 cases per year to 3000 to 5000 can be a daunting task. The choices in winery equipment, capacity and price vary all over the place.  The great thing about Ryan is, having been a wine maker for years, he knows how to design things from start to finish. When I harvested my first ten tons of the year at 6:30 a.m., Ryan and his staff were there making sure everything was working correctly. I knew I had made a good decision."

Northern Tight Grain 

Growing Region

Oak is selected from the elevated ridges of the Minnesota Lakes District.

Average Rainfall – 990 mm pa.

Elevation average – 450 meters

Seasoning

Oak Seasoned at mill for 36 months receiving an annual precipitation of 1000 mm pa including snow prior to shipment to our Cooperage – Barossa Valley, South Australia. The oak then spends another 4 – 6 months in our seasoning yard to acclimatize the oak prior to manufacturing.

Performance

Our Minnesota oak displays very consistent growth ring spacing typically between 18 – 23/inch. We toast this barrel type to a medium toast to enhance the regional organoleptic properties of this barrel.

The customized toasting provides a barrel that enhances the primary fruit characters and contributes sweet spice and underlying subtle seasoned oak. With time the fine oak tannins work with the fruit to promote a silky mouth feel and seamless structure. This tight grained oak assists line and length and is a great match for full bodied wines requiring extended maturation.High-level
