We have put together a selection of these toastings for you with brief information:

These profiles represent a selection of very popular toasting variants in Europe. Many of these used alone are too much for one wine, therefore the combination must be sought and selected. The application to other types of wine is also conceivable! For further toasting profiles please contact us!

Profiles 11:
This toasting is designed for really fine wines, it adds body and length while creating a nice balance between fruit and wood. This toasting on the classic American barrel brings complexity and finesse! Can be used for example with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay.

Profile 33:
Developed by a European oenologist, designed for medium to very complex body red wines. This toast is applied in a relatively short time with great heat. Characteristic are vanilla aromas, light toasted characters, slightly wood characters on the tongue. To be applied e.g. with Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.

Profile 37:
A toast made by slowly and steadily applying heat. This toast enhances the toasted aromas, it brings a mix between dark toast, toffee and caramelized sugar. This toast gives the wine a typical barrique taste. To be used for example with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay.

Profile 52:
A toasting developed to reduce the lactone character in American oak. By increasing the toasting time and temperature, the lignin breakdown is increased and this profile pronounces vanilla notes. It is a toasting that offers the fruity character and light notes of dark toast and smoke aromas.

Profile 105:
Corresponds to the Medium Plus Toasting and is a further development of this, with a somewhat rounder finish.

Profile 107:
This toast is an intermediate between Profile 52 and Profile 33, it offers mild vanillin and roasted aromas, has its best results in Pinot Noir.
To be used e.g. with Pinot Noir
