Description

For rounder and smoother tannins in reds; OMRI listed Reds

Opti-RED™ is an inactivated and partially autolyzed yeast derivative nutrient. Opti-RED may be used either at the beginning or towards the end of red wine fermentations. Using Opti-RED in the must quickly releases polysaccharides. These polysaccharides are then available to complex with polyphenols. This early complexing results in red wines with better color stability. Using Opti-RED in the latter part of alcoholic fermentation allows the winemaker to shape harsh polyphenolics into smoother, more approachable tannins.

Recommended for use:  
  • Used early during fermentation: Promotes color stability  
  • Used late during fermentation: Smooths harsh tannins  
Recommended Dosage: 
40 g/hL 3.3 lb/1000 gal 

Usage:  
Mix Opti-RED in 10 times its weight of must or water and add during a punch-down or a pump-over to ensure Opti-Red is mixed in well. This product is partially soluble. Stir to maintain suspension before and during addition.

Storage: 
Dated expiration. Store at 18°C(65°F). Once opened, keep tightly sealed and dry.
