Demptos Hungary sources the same species of oak trees in Hungary, as our French coopers offer in France and its French trained coopers make consistent Tight Grain barrels.
Popular in NZ for Chardonnay, Pinot, Merlot and Cabernet. Expect spice nuances and a gentle 'roundness' in the mid palate.
ALL barrels are Tight Grain and 3 year seasoned except the 'No I' EXTRA TIGHT GRAIN which suits premium, concentrated reds maturing 12 months and beyond. 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.
