American oak for “last minute” structure and balance
Scott’Tan™ Royal is derived from American oak. It may be used in red and white wines to add structure, balance and length on the palate. Royal is a good complement for wines aged with American oak. It is known to bring out hints of cocoa, chocolate, coffee and butterscotch. Royal has also been known to help mask off-aromas and flavors of Brettanomyces.
Royal integrates rapidly and is great for “last-minute” additions. Can be added up to 48 hours before membrane (final) filtration. Always conduct filterability trials prior to addition to avoid filtration challenges.
Dissolve Royal in about 10 times its weight of warm water 35–40°C(95–104°F) until fully dissolved. Add to wine gradually during a transfer or pump-over. Good mixing is important.
Dated expiration. Unopened the shelf-life is 4 years at 18°C(65°F). Once opened, keep tightly sealed and dry.
