Product

Properties

Application

Gelatins are obtained from the partial hydrolysis of the collagen contained in animal skins.

They are used in the fining of red, white and rosé wines, in order to clarify and stabilize the wine, and to improve their sensory qualities. The gelatins manufactured in our factory are made from rigorously selected raw materials and undergo strictly controlled production protocols.

 

Numerous parameters involved in gelatin manufacturing lead to a great diversity of products, however three main criteria allow this diversity to be characterised:

  • Type of hydrolysis: chemical or enzymatic.

  • Intensity of hydrolysis.

  • Purity of the raw gelatin used.
     

Depending of these criteria, very different gelatins are produced, whose properties, and consequently organoleptic impacts on the wine, are extremely varied.

Gelatines

Application

Properties

Product

Solution of pure food grade gelatine - Pig origin exclusively.

Allows rapid elimination of undesirable phenolics and contributes to the wine's ageing potential.

Characterised by a high surface charge density enabling it to act with precision on certain colloidal substances which act as aroma maskers.  Promotes aroma expression, and restores freshness without modifying the structural equilibrium of the wine.

Clarification & Stabilization

Clarification & Stabilization

Liquid gelatin produced from a selection of exceptionally pure raw materials.  Pig origin exclusively. Promoting the organoleptic potential of wines, elimination of phenolics and aggressive tannins. Recommended for red and rose wines.

Other Fining or Addition Products

Product

Properties

Application

A colloidal solution of silicon dioxide 

Oxidation protection for musts and juices, preserving freshness and aromatic intensity.  Ideal for Botrytis affected grapes.  Composed of ascorbic acid, tannin and potassium metabisulfite.

Oxidation Protection

Oxidation Treatment

Pure Polyvinylpolypyrrolidone (PVPP).  Preventive and curative treatment of oxydation in wine and must. 

Brettanomyces Control

Chitosan and enzyme based preparation for the control of Brettanomyces spoilage.

Potassium Sorbate - yeast inhibitor for sweet wines.

Yeast Inhibitor

Formula made from chitosan, vegetable protein (patatin, which is a potato protein isolate) and pectinase and ß-glucanase-based enzyme preparation for reducing the microbial load (yeasts, lactic bacteria, acetic acid bacteria), as well as protecting wines against certain unfavourable microorganisms. 

Microbial Protection,

Antioxidant &

Clarification

Treatment for oxidation and maderization in rose and white wines.  Removes browning and contributes to colour refreshment, refines sensory characteristics.  In the case of Botrytis infected grapes, recommended in young wines to decrease oxidized characteristics. Clarification agent contributing to preparing for wine filtration.
