Inserts help achieve the aroma and flavor impact of new oak barrels while using used or neutral barrels. THERMIC inserts are also more cost-effective and sustainable than new oak barrels.

Scott Laboratories’ THERMIC line of oak infusion products are the most innovative available. THERMIC is produced using a proprietary thermal modification process which results in a wide spectrum of flavor profiles that are incredibly consistent. THERMIC comes in staves, cubes, and barrel inserts, each of which are available in five distinct flavor profiles.

THERMIC profiles can be used on their own or blended in tank to produce the desired oak characteristics. Additionally, THERMIC’s consistency ensures that bench trials accurately predict the oak impact in your wine at production scale.

Your wine matrix may change with each vintage, but THERMIC will not.
