Scott’Tan™ Tannin Estate can help compensate for lack of tannins in finished wine without the “dryness” associated with barrels. It enhances mid-palate and complexity while providing a measure of anti-oxidant protection. Fruit characters can be enhanced. Tannin Estate is especially recommended when using older, tannin depleted barrels.
UsageDuring transfer or racking add Tannin Estate into the wine. Mix well to assure homogeneity. Additions may be made during the first 2-3 rackings, followed by organoleptic evaluation. First additions should be made 3-6 weeks before bottling to allow for polymerization and settling.
