The Elevage-Infiniti™ reusable long-life polymer sustainable barrel provides the perfect maturation vessel for premium wines separating oak and oxygen to allowing precise control of oxygen and oak uptake.
The Elevage-Infiniti™ provides advantages with handling, logistics, storage and cleaning. It can be easily cleaned after each vintage and reduces the need for sulphur and additives to mask issues like microbiological loading, oxidation and ullage.
With a 25 year life span, our Infinity™ Sustainable Barrel solution more than halves the cost of direct capital purchase and in Elevage-direct operational costs compared to traditional oak barrels..
Elevage uses more of the oak from a single 170 year old tree when harvested thereby reducing waste and preserving trees to give 14x more yield with the 1kL making 62 new barrel equivalents rather than 4.4 traditional barrels (990 litres). This underpins our circular economy philosophy.
Lifetime of every Elevage-Infiniti™ sustainable barrel saves the equivalent of 89 new traditional barrels or 22 oak trees (each one on average 170 years old) saving over 3,750 total growing years – hence the ‘Elevage-Sustainable-Barrel™. Saves limited resources with less capital invested, less time, less labour that provides better returns with lower risk.
