Kadar (Hungarian Oak0
Description: At Kádár Hungary, barrels are handcrafted with machines for cutting and sanding, barrels are raised, toasted and finished by the most experienced cadre of coopers in Hungary.
Wood lots are inspected upon arrival, aged for at least twenty-four months and up to thirty-six.
TOASTING: Working with feedback from winemakers in Tuscany and California, we have extended toasting times and lowered the flames to provide a deeper toast so critical with tight grained barrels while avoiding burning and blisters. Deeper lower toast accentuates the brown spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves in the barrels without the attendant smoky bacon flavors.
