ŒNOSTICK: Barrel Insert

ŒNOSTICK® Barrel Insert

The dimensions, shape and position of the cylinders in the barrel have been carefully designed to obtain an optimum enhancement of wines aged in used wine barrels:

• Input of qualitative new wood according to slow wine/wood exchange kinetics (closer to barrel aging)
• Restoration of progressive oxygen contribution, suited to the desired organoleptic profiles

OENOSTICK® has been designed to complement winemaking methods:

• Racking and barrel cleaning are made easier by the cylinders’ positioning
• Less reduction and a balanced perception of oak

The ŒNOSTICK® Range:

W6: Discreet oak notes that retain the wines’ fundamental fruity expression. Increase in volume with no excessive structuring to preserve roundness and balance on the palate.

W8: Notes of red fruit, along with hints of spice and vanilla. Provides volume and roundness without added tannic sensation.

W10: ripe fruit aromas and soft oak notes (vanilla, toast). Volume and sweetness with soft and nuanced finish.


The OENOSTICK® insert is pre-mounted and its 2 stainless steel 316L screws make it fast and easy to install. We recommend that you seek the assistance of a qualified technician to ensure that the barrel is fully sealed after reassembly.
