  • Product description

    OPTI-MUM RED™ helps to produce wines with intense color, a rounder, softer mouthfeel, and a decreased perception of astringency.

    • Early additions of OPTI-MUM RED lead to more stable color due to reactions between early-released color molecules (anthocyanins), phenolic compounds (tannins), and polysaccharides (OPTI-MUM RED)
    • Reduces the perception of green, astringent tannins in cool-climate or low maturity fruit
    • Reduces the sensation of hotness in high alcohol wines
    • The mannoprotein portion of this autolyzed yeast helps soften mouthfeel
    • The yeast strain behind OPTI-MUM RED was specifically selected and fully autolyzed for its highly reactive high molecular weight polysaccharides and oligosaccharides
