Tannin FT Rouge Powder 10gram

Special blend of highly reactive tannins that stabilize color, improve structure and help reduce vegetal characters. Add at crush. If using enzymes wait 8 hours after the enzyme addition before adding tannins. Dosage rate: 1.3 g/gal must.

FT Rouge is proprietary tannin specifically formulated for the North American market. It is a blend of highly reactive tannins derived from exotic woods and chestnut. The addition of FT Rouge at the beginning of red wine fermentation helps preserve the grapes’ natural tannins so they can combine with anthocyanins to create optimal stable color. Mouthfeel is also enhanced. FT Rouge provides antioxidative protection and will inhibit oxidative enzymes (such as laccase) associated with browning.

Gradually sprinkle FT Rouge directly on grapes at the crusher or add to the must during a pump-over to obtain good homogenization. If subsequent additions of FT Rouge are desired, this can be done in increments of 0.5 lb/1000 gallons (63 ppm) during pump-overs. If you add FT Rouge (or FT Rouge Soft) post-fermentation, wait 3-6 weeks after the addition before racking, fining, filtering or bottling.

Dated expiration. Unopened the shelf life is 5 years at 18ºC (65ºF). Once opened keep tightly sealed and dry.
