Oak Restorer® HW is a mid-pH cleaner that has been specially formulated to be gentle on oak surfaces whilst still providing a powerful clean that will not taint your wine.  It penetrates to remove fine solids within the porous would surface.  This hot water formulation is the most effective variation, however a cold water variation is available.

Add To Cart


A cream-white, free-flowing, homogeneous blend of fine particulate solids of medium strength alkaline salts and proprietary FG surfactants.


Oak Restorer® HW in a hot water (40-60 ºC) aqueous solution removes wine tartar, wine-colour film, protein and organic soil to completely clean internal oak surfaces and rinse cleanly.

Principal Features

  • Oak Restorer® has been proven to be non-tainting to wine and oak.
  • Supports WH&S.  Low VOC, no reactivity in water, no toxic vapour, non-dangerous good for transport and handling.
  • Readily solubilised in water.  Low chemical demand at 1-2% of water volume.
  • In testing, Oak Restorer® cleans more thoroughly, to a greater depth than the current accepted practice of hot water pressure washing.
  • Thoroughly cleans the internal contact surfaces extending the effective working life of oak storage vessels as wine maturation vessels.  Prospectively reduces spending on barrels.

  • Rinses cleanly with potable water at ambient temperature.
  • Highly biodegradable (<30 days).
