A Tannin complex added post fermentation to improve structure and protect wine from oxidation. No harshness. While racking or stirring, add to the wine incrementally. Add 3 weeks+ before bottling. Use 0.20-1.14 g/gal (5-30 g/hL) prior to aging.
CHARACTERISTICS Tannin Complex is a proprietary cellaring and finishing product. It is a blend of proanthocyanidic (exotic woods) and ellagic (oak) tannins. It enhances structure, aids color stabilization and provides antioxidant protection. It is less reactive and more polymerized than some other tannins, thus it integrates well and provides balance. It is particularly useful in wines with up-front fruit or where smooth tannin structure is lacking.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE During transfer or racking add Tannin Complex into the wine, mixing well for homogeneity. Additions may be made during the first 2-3 rackings, followed by organoleptic evaluation. Final additions should be made 3-6 weeks before bottling to allow for complete polymerization and settling.
