Oakbak is the recovery of unexploited heartwood oak from within the staves of a decommissioned barrel. Re-use your expired oak barrels to extract virgin heartwood oak planks for a fraction of the cost of new barrels.
Stakvat is a 900-litre stainless steel maturation vessel that can be stacked vertically. The stacking system means that 60% more wine can be stored in the same place as that occupied by barrels on racks.
Winemakers face many challenges including the cost of quality oak barrels to mature their wine and then the storage of 1000’s of litres of wine. Ausvat has conquered these challenges with Oakbak and Stakvat.
