French oak for “last minute” complexity and flavor integration
Scott’Tan™ Onyx is derived from French oak. It was designed for use in red and rosé wines to bring out berry and sweet red fruit notes. Onyx is known for maintaining varietal characteristics while adding complexity and minimizing greenness. It helps soften and integrate flavors.
Onyx 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 Onyx in about ten 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.
