Here are the main characteristics of our 3 different oaks from USA
Missouri: the most traditional, the sweetest and the fattest..a lot of sweet vanilla and coconut, fat in the mouth, works best on reds: Cab, Merlot, Zin.
Appalachian: the most interesting characteristic is its spiciness, both in the nose and the mouth; lemon cream sensation in the mid palate, and long finish; works extremely well on zin, but also very versatile; great with syrah, and sometimes very nice with chardonnay ( big chardonnay...)
Minnesota: the tightest grain (grows North): delicate, little “bready” sometimes; the best American oak for chardonnay; works also well on red for longer aging.
Please let me know which grape varieties you are using and we will send you some good references.
