Macerating enzyme for heavier, more extracted reds
Scottzyme® Color X is a unique pectinase with cellulase sideactivities. These activities help release anthocyanins, polymeric phenols and tannins.
In trials we have found the tannic extraction is coarser with Color X than with Color Pro. We therefore recommend using Color X when heavier tannic extraction is desired for longer aging. The colour response of Color X is similar to Color Pro.
Crushed Fruit: 60-100 mL/ton
Juice: best used before fermentation
Wine: best used before fermentation
Dilute Scottzyme Color X to approximately a 10% solution in cool water. Pour the solution over the crushed grapes or add during a pump-over before alcoholic fermentation. Best used before fermentation.
Store at 4°C(40°F) for 1-2 years. Keep tightly sealed and refrigerated once opened.
