Tannin Refresh: is extracted from 100% French oak. It will contribute wood nuance without smoky or toasty characters and is especially useful when old barrels are used during aging. This finishing tannin is a strong anti-oxidant. It will help preserve color and can increase the complexity of the wine’s finish. Finishing Tannin for White, Rosé & Red Wines.
Tannin FT Rouge: is specifically formulated for the North American market. It is a blend of highly reactive tannins derived from exotic woods and chestnut. The addition of FT Rouge at the beginning of red wine fermentation helps preserve the grapes’ natural tannins so they can combine with anthocyanins to create optimal stable color. Mouthfeel is also enhanced. FT Rouge provides anti-oxidative protection and will inhibit oxidative enzymes (such as laccase) associated with browning.
Tannin FT Rouge Soft: is specifically formulated for its gentle impact. It is particularly suitable for Pinot Noir and early-to-release wines. FT Rouge Soft is reactive with natural grape proteins and thus helps promote optimal color and color stability while enhancing structure. Mouthfeel and roundness are improved while the potential for bitter characters is reduced. FT Rouge Soft provides anti-oxidative protection.
Tannin Estate: can help compensate for lack of tannins in finished wine without the “dryness” associated with barrels. It enhances mid-palate and complexity while providing a measure of anti-oxidant protection. Fruit characters can be enhanced. Tannin Estate is especially recommended when using older, tannin depleted barrels.
Tannin FT Blanc: is a white gall nut tannin specifically formulated for use on grapes with mold or rot (e.g. Botrytis). It helps protect juice from browning by acting as an anti-oxidant and inhibiting laccase activity. On sound grapes FT Blanc is an effective anti-oxidant when used with SO2. In protein rich varieties, such as Sauvignon Blanc, FT Blanc can help remove proteins. In some wines it will also contribute notes of minerality.
Tannin FT Blanc Soft: is similar to FT Blanc in application but wines made with it are also characterized by softness and improved mouthfeel. White and rosé wines made with FT Blanc Soft have enhanced texture with a perception of sweetness on the palate. Even relatively small dosages can contribute to minerality in wines. Similar improvements can be seen in fruit and mead wines.

Tannin QUERTANIN is a preparation of noble ellagic stave tannins extracted from the oak heartwood for ageing red, white and rosé wines. Acts on wine structure and length. Protects wine from oxidation (more aromatic intensity). Eliminates reductive odours.
