Opti-Red® is a fantastic product from Scott Laboratories which will boost color and mouthfeel in your red wines by speeding the polymerization of anthocyanins and tannins.

The result is deeper, more stable color and tannins which exhibit a more rounded mouthfeel than would be had with short chain tannin structures. Opti-Red® is a natural product derived from the cell walls of inactivated yeast.

To develop a plan for making a bold red wine, enjoy our discussion of various techniques that can help improve your red wine body and flavor.

How to Use

Use 10 g per 100 pounds of must. Sprinkle Opti-Red over the must at the time of a punch-down, then mix in thoroughly. When added at first-punch, it will tend to help stabilize color. When used in the later stages of fermentation it shapes harsh polyphenolics into smoother, more approachable tannins. Do not change your regular nutrient program. See the Official Product Sheet from Scott Laboratories for more information and best practices.
