Red wine mash fermentation tank with oak shell FD-MKEH

Rotweinmaische-Gärtank mit Eichenholzmantel FD-MKEH

Over 100 years of experience in oak barrel production

Since we began making wooden barrels over 100 years ago Speidel’s latest developments have benefited from our multi-generational experience: the FD-MKEH tank unites all the advantages of a Speidel tank with the characteristics of a real oak barrel.

The respiration and perfect temperature equalisation guaranteed by the tank’s wooden shell permits a sensory balancing of the aroma. The connection of oak and stainless steel creates a significant improvement in quality.

The unique groove joint connection of oak and stainless steel guarantees two things: you will obtain better wines and be able to enjoy this Speidel-made 'gem' for many years to come.

The red wine mash fermentation tank with oak shell comes with a mash bottom outlet and a hinged door. The bottom outlet is made of stainless steel and – in contrast to tanks that are entirely made of wood – guarantees easier draining and cleaning.
