For greater and smoother tannin structure in reds
ICV Booster Rouge® is a yeast derivative nutrient originating from a specific wine yeast isolated and selected by the ICV. The yeast macromolecules in Booster Rouge interact with red wine polyphenols, resulting in a positive influence on the colloidal balance of the final wine.
When used in red must sourced from hot climates, Booster Rouge wines are perceived as having higher foremouth volume and smoother mid-palate tannic structure, as well as fresher aromatic sensations.
Booster Rouge complements short maceration times in premium reds fermented with ICV GRE resulting in mid-palate intensity and fresh varietal aromas.
Perceptions of aggressive and drying tannic sensations are minimized due to the high molecular weight polysaccharides that are released.
In ultra-premium reds from balanced and mature grapes, Booster Rouge shows good synergy with ICV D254 and ICV D21.
Booster Rouge may also be added during the latter part of the alcoholic fermentation to contribute tannin intensity and alcohol integration.
Mix Booster Rouge in 10 times its weight in must or water. Booster Rouge is only partially soluble. Booster Rouge can be added directly to the crusher or later during a pump-over. Stir to maintain suspension before and during addition.
