This product replaces our TAN140 - Tannin Plus
Enological tannins offer the winemaker the possibility to add refined, highly-bindable tannin to your wine at any stage during the process. Benefits can include increased structure and mouthfeel, color stabilization, stability, anti-oxidative qualities, and overall complexity. Tannins can reduce vegetal/herbaceous characteristics and perceived astringency. We offer four types of oenolgical tannins, two for use during fermentation, and two for use during the aging phase.
Tannin Riche Extra is a preparation of 100% American oak tannin that has been lightly toasted to impart a soft, aromatic character while enhancing the structure and organoleptic complexity of a wine. Tannin Riche Extra is a great tool for imparting hints of coconut, a heightened vanillin oak character and a smooth finish to your wines. Although designed for fine-tuning a wine, Tannin Riche Extra still maintains the regular properties associated with the use of tannins such as helping with clarification, stability, oxidation, and aging. Works well in conjunction with low doses of other tannins (i.e: Tannin Complex & FT Blanc Soft).
Dissolve the tannin in 10 times its weight in warm water (95F/35C). Add to the wine during a punch-down or pump-over for good mixing. Addition of Tannin Plus should be made a minimum of three weeks before bottling.
A rough approximate of weight is 3/4 tsp = 1 gram. We highly recommend using a scale to weigh the product for an accurate dose. We do not recommend relying on these rough conversions for accurate dosage rates.
