Mannoprotein/gum arabic with positive impact on stability and perceived volume
UltiMA Fresh is a proprietary blend of specific mannoproteins together with gum arabic. It has been shown to have a volume enhancing effect on red and white wines, while also reducing perceptions of bitterness and acidity. Bench trials are highly recommended and allow the winemaker to fine tune use of UltiMA Fresh for optimal results.
It is a fully soluble product. If the wine is not to be filtered, it may be used immediately prior to bottling. Gum arabic and mannoproteins both have some stabilizing effects on wine, though the addition of this product is not a replacement for good winemaking practice and thorough analysis.
Bench trials recommended for wine
Add UltiMA Fresh by mixing with 10 times its weight of water. UltiMA Fresh should be the last commercial product added to the wine. Ideally it should be added to the wine using a dosing pump. If the wine is to be filtered, it is recommended that the addition be done 24–72 hours before the membrane filtration and that filterability trials be conducted prior to filtration.
