  • Product description

    Opti-Red ® is a unique natural yeast preparation that undergoes a specific refining process resulting in a high level of polyphenol-reactive yeast cell wall polysaccharides.

    Using Opti-Red ® in the must provides early polysaccharide availability for the complexing with polyphenols as soon as they are released and diffused. This early complexing results in red wines with more stable colour, rounder mouth feel and better harsh or green tannin integration.

    Dosage recommendation:

    Add Opti-Red® to the must at 227 g/ton (0.5 lb/ton) or 30 g/hL (2.4 lb/1000 gal) towards the end of fermentation.
