Tannins

Fermentation Tannins

Colour-Tan Liquid

For producing wines with smooth, full body and rounded structure by reacting with unstable proteins in the must.

• Higher doses add structure to tannin-deficient grapes.

• Also helpful at inhibiting the browning associated with Botrytis affected grapes.

• Extracted from Quebracho (condensed tannin) and Chestnut (hydrolysable tannin).

• Rapidly stabilizes color.

• Prevents indigenous tannins from binding with proteins and precipitating out.

Application: To be used during fermentation, ideally in two doses; at the beginning of fermentation and 2 – 3 days later.

Packaging: 1 kg packet, 25 kg box and 25 kg drum.

Recommended Dosage: 1 – 2 lb/1,000 gal (powder), 2 – 4 lb/1,000 gal (liquid). 10 – 25 g/hL (powder), 25 – 50 g/hL (liquid).

Gallic-Tan 

Protects juice and wine from standard oxidation and the effects of Botrytis infected grapes.

• Acts as an aid during clarification to enhance fruit character in white wines.

• Can be added to heavily Botrytis affected reds in conjunction with Color-Tan.

• Selectively reacts with proteins and reduces the activity of laccase and tryosinase on anthocyans and polyphenols, lowering the risk of oxidation.

• Acts as a taste corrector, especially when in the presence of Botrytis affected fruit.

Application: To be used on Botrytis affected fruit and at any stage that a wine may be exposed to oxidation.

Packaging: 1 kg and 25 kg drum.

Recommended Dosage: 0.4 – 1.2 lb/1,000 gal. 5 – 15 g/hL.

Ageing and Finishing Tannins

Cherry-Tan  

Unique composition designed to add complexity and structure to red and rosé wine styles without imposing itself or ‘blemishing’ the wine. • Integrates perfectly within the wine’s aromatic profile enhancing both the fruity and floral bouquet of the wine.

• Can be used in Red and Rosé wines at any stage.

Application: During fermentation, ideally this should be done in two doses on the 2nd and 4th day of fermentation. For rosé wines, only one dose on the 2nd day after the start of fermentation is required.

Packaging: 1 kg packet and 5 kg packet.

Recommended Dosage: 0.2 – 0.6 lb/1,000 gal. 2 – 7 g/hL.

Querca-Tan Blanc

Anti-oxidative properties are ideal for use at the beginning of fermentation to regulate the oxi-reductive potential, complex the oxygen and prevent browning.

• Gives a very mild oak aroma to the wines enhancing the mature fruit bouquet.

• Simple extract of aged oak wood without any chemical treatment or heating.

• Extracted from wood of Quercus robur (English Oak) and petraea (Oak).

• For white and rosé wines where a strong wood note could be unpleasant.

Application: Exceptional for micro-oxygenation, especially in wines where it is necessary to maintain the varietal fruit notes.

Packaging: 1 kg packet.

Recommended Dosage: 0.1 – 0.5 lb/1,000 gal. 2 – 6 g/hL.

Querca-Tan Rouge

Improves the concentration of wood aroma precursors giving the wine a soft oak bouquet.

• Extracted from the wood of Quercus robur (English Oak) and petraea (Oak).

• Simple extract of aged oak wood without any chemical or heat treatment.

Application: Can be used at any stage of wine production from the beginning of fermentation or prior to barrel maturation or micro-ox. Packaging: 1 kg packet.

Recommended Dosage: 0.1 – 0.5 lb/1,000 gal. 2 – 6 g/hL.
