Description
Promotes color, structure and fruit

Scott’Tan™ FT Rouge is a proprietary tannin which is a blend of highly reactive tannins derived from exotic woods and chestnut. The addition of FT Rouge at the beginning of red wine fermentation helps preserve the grapes’ natural tannins so they can combine with anthocyanins to create optimal color stability. Mouthfeel is also enhanced. FT Rouge provides antioxidative protection and may inhibit oxidative enzymes (such as laccase) associated with browning.

Dosage

Red Vinifera Must: 20–50 g/hL
Red Non-Vinifera: 30–60 g/hL
Fruit: 20–50 g/hL

Usage

Gradually pour directly on grapes at the crusher or add to the must during a pump-over to obtain good homogenization. If subsequent additions are desired, this can be done in increments of 0.5 lb/1000 gal (~60 ppm) during pump-overs. If an addition is made post-fermentation, we recommend waiting 3–6 weeks after the tannin addition before racking, fining, filtering or bottling.

Storage

Dated expiration. Unopened, the shelf-life is 5 years at 18°C(65°F). Once opened, keep tightly sealed and dry.
