Performance

The ‘fan’ pack can be used during alcoholic and malolactic fermentations as well as for maturation applications. The A.P. John ‘fans’ offer a surface-to-volume ratio that provides the winemaker with optimum control over the regulation of the transference of oak flavours and characteristics.

Our packs have been designed for easy installation across small, medium and large tanks (from 1000L upward). Experience with A.P. John ‘fans’ indicates applications of between one and three square metres per 1000 litres of wine delivers the integration sought by most winemakers.

Please contact our experienced sales team for more information about oak types and application rates to suit your specific requirements.

Technical Specifications

Complete with stainless steel wire and carabiner (snap hook) for securing to existing rings, lugs or the tank lid. A.P. John packages ‘fans’ to ensure freshness and to keep packaging materials to a minimum, however we can pack to suit your individual requirements. No assembly is required.

Seasoning

The oak is seasoned at the mill in North America for two winters, where it receives an annual precipitation of 1600mm (plus snow) prior to shipment to our cooperage in the Barossa. The oak then spends another two-to-six months in our seasoning yard for further conditioning, which further enhances the unique properties, and to stabilise the moisture content.
