These new toasts place more emphasis on the maturation and textural development of your wine rather than the addition of furanic and guiacol compounds, typically derived from traditional heavier toast treatments.

These new toasts are Light Long Toast (LXT), Medium Light Long Toast (MLXT) and Medium Long Toast (MXT).
