New Haandbakk vintage aged in different barrels?

    I got a couple bottles of Haandbakk lately, one of my favorites beers. I noticed reading the label of these bottles (labeled "Vintage 10") that it no longer says the beer was aged in sherry and rhubarb wine barrels like older vintages did. It just says "oak barrels". The website (http://haandbryggeriet.net/Vintage.html) talks about aging them in wine barrels from Burgundy, but doesn't specify a vintage.

    Anyone know any specifics on this? Do they just age it in whatever barrels they can get their hands on year to year?
