Blend of grape tannin extracted from seed of white grapes ,condensed tannin extracted from exotic wood species, chestnut tannin.
ENARTIS TAN FRUITAN is a blend of condensed tannins, many extracted from fresh, physiologically-ripe, white grape seeds. These proanthocyanidinic tannins interact with anthocyanins (the molecule responsible for color in red wines) binding them and protecting them from oxidation. The use of ENARTIS TAN FRUITAN during fermentation on skins, or immediately after alcoholic fermentation allows for better color retention and improved color stability over time. ENARTIS TAN FRUITAN increases the body and fresh fruit character of wine, as well as increasing overall wine aromatics. ENARTIS TAN FRUITAN can also mask excessive astringency which may reduce the need for further finings.
