French oak character for neutral barrel cellaring
Scott’Tan™ Refresh is a proprietary tannin extracted from 100% French oak. It will contribute wood nuance without smoky or toasty characters and is especially useful when old or neutral barrels are used during aging. This finishing/cellaring tannin is a strong antioxidant. It will help preserve colour and can increase the complexity of the wine’s finish.
Gradually add Refresh to the wine during a transfer or during racking. After the addition of Refresh, it is recommended to proceed with normal rackings until fining. In young wines kept in tanks, Refresh should be added immediately after malolactic fermentation. If malolactic fermentation is not desired, add at the end of alcoholic fermentation.
