Description
For rounder and smoother tannins in reds; OMRI listed

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.

Dosage

30 g/hL 

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
