Demptos Hungary sources the sames species and age of oak as that in France and utilises French coopering techniques to make consistent Tight Grain barrels.
Popular in NZ for Chardonnay, Pinot, Merlot and Cabernet. Expect spice and a gentle 'roundness' in the mid palate.
ALL barrels are min Tight Grain and 3 year seasoned.
The 'No I' however, is EXTRA TIGHT GRAIN and suits premium quality, concentrated reds that will mature for 12 months min. The 'PINOT' option is wood from Forest number 5. Now also widely used with Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet, its elevated toasting profile adds a savoury note and more texture.
