Enological tannins offer the winemaker the possibility to add refined, highly-bindable tannin to wine at any stage during the process. Benefits can include increased structure and mouthfeel, color stabilization, stability, anti-oxidative qualities, and overall complexity. Tannins can reduce vegetal/herbaceous characteristics and perceived astringency. FT Blanc Soft’s continual bonding going on throughout the fermentation improves mouthfeel and help significantly reduce or eliminate vegetal/herbaceous characters and bitterness. FT Blanc Soft imparts a perception of sweetness without contributing any sugars, along with a low-level, beneficial minerality.

Note: FT Blanc Soft can also be used as an ageing tannin post-fermentation as well! To Use Add directly to the grapes at the crusher or to the juice/wine. Mix thoroughly to ensure homogenization. Note: If using FT Blanc Soft as an aging tannin, final addition should be made 3-6 weeks before bottling to allow for complete polymerization and settling.
