Uvaspeed - Grape Tannin for Adding Tannin to Wine or Adding Tannin to Cider

EnartisTan Uvaspeed grape tannin is an enological tannin product from Enartis extracted from the skins of unfermented white grapes. It has been selected by our staff as a premium choice of finishing tannin for adding tannin to wine or adding tannin to cider to produce the body and mouthfeel you desire.

Use these tannins to achieve a smoother, more integrated body while bringing fruity notes forward.  In grape wines and ciders it can be used to improve body, aromatic complexity and varietal fruit expression. In some cases, it helps to reduce astringency and bitterness.  Finishing tannins can also be an effective tool for reducing "hot" alcohol perception in wine, masking vegetal character, enhancing fruit flavors, and controlling oxidation.

In red wines, when added at the beginning of the aging process, it favors the formation of condensed pigments that provide an intense and stable color in the long term. 


Considering Adding Uvaspeed Tannin to your cider?

We encourage you to do so!  Get yourself acquainted with the practice by reading the results of a cider sensory study performed at Cornell University and published by the New York State Horticultural Society in Spring 2017.  They demonstrated the capacity to make quality ciders with dessert apples (like most of us have access to!) and that different styles can be developed just by adding tannins to the cider.

How to Use


  • Conduct a small scale dosing trial to determine the appropriate level of tannin to add to your beverage. Dosage range typically lies between 0.5 - 3.5 g per 5 gallons, or up to 200 ppm. 
  • Dissolve at a 1:10 ratio in water, wine/cider or juice while continuously mixing.
  • While it is recommended to add Uvaspeed during the early stages of wine/cider maturation, it can be added as late as 1-2 weeks prior to bottling.
