New in 2015, Scott’Tan™ FT Rouge Berry is a mixture of condensed tannins extracted from wood of red berry fruit species. The use of FT Rouge Berry during the course of alcoholic fermentation, in combination with yeast strains with a marked activity β-glycosidase (such as 71B, GRE, NT116, and RHONE 4600(, allows for the development of enhanced red berry characters.
The resulting wines may present intense aromas of cherry, strawberry, and blueberry, which complement other varietal aromas and those produced during fermentation. FT Rouge Berry also promotes the stabilization of color and prevents oxidation of the primary aromas.Recommended Dosage
- Rosé must: 20-150 ppm / 2-15 g/hL / 0.17-1.2 lbs/1000 gal
- Red must: 50-200 ppm / 5-20 g/hL / 0.42-1.6 lbs/1000 gal
FT Rouge Berry Tannin additions are highly beneficial during rot management for red wines
as they act as an antioxidant and help minimize the damage from laccase.
