FINING, STABILIZING & ADDITIONS

Laffort_large_0601.png

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.

GRAPE SKIN EXTRACT
GRAPE SKIN EXTRACT

Grape skin extract is an excellent choice for your red wine that needs a little help with color. This is a water-soluble natural food color extracted from Vinifera grape skins. It adds a great deal of color and we suggest using a bench test to find the amount required. Color is almost always stable. Product should be kept refrigerated.
