Scott’Tan™ FT Rouge Berry is a mixture of condensed tannins extracted from wood of red berry fruit. The use of FT Rouge Berry in combination with yeast strains with a marked beta-glycosidase activity such as 71B, ICV GRE, NT 116, and Rhône 4600, allows for the development of enhanced red berry characters.
The resulting wines may present intense aromas of cherry, strawberry, and blueberry, which complement varietal aromas produced during fermentation. FT Rouge Berry can also promote the stabilization of color and prevent oxidation of the primary aromas.
UsageAdd FT Rouge Berry at the first pump-over or punch-down, or 24-48 hours after yeast inoculation. Dissolve in ten times its weight in water before adding.
