Enological tannins offer the winemaker the possibility to add refined, highly bindable tannin to your wine at any stage during the process. Benefits can include increased structure and mouthfeel, color stabilization, stability, anti-oxidative qualities, and overall compelxity. Tannins can reduce vegetal/herbaceous characteristics and perceived astringency.

New Liquid Oak Tannins produced by Toasted Oak Inc. are water based, French Oak Tannin Concnetrates, designed to easily integrate smooth and flavorful oak character into a wine, without the cost or hassle of traditional oak barrels. While powdered tannins are smiliarly cost effective, there will be some loss of flavor and texsture due to the high temperatures necessary to evaporate all liquid out. Liquid Oak Tannins are the perfect balance of oak barrel flavor and pure tannin cost!

Aside from the beneficial flavor impact of these products, they are also easier to add to the wine and assure even dilution. These Liquid Oak Tannins are for red and white wines. Please do a bench trial carefully when considering their use in white wines. Additions may cause filterability (and stability) changes. You should not exceed 30% of normal red wine dosing for white wines.

Fruit Enhancer Plus has more proanthocyanidic tannin components to emphasize a ripe berry character and a fruity, aromatic style. It has to be carefully dosed as it will have a strong influence on the existing character of the wine. It works best on red wines when used to accentuate a ripe berry character (specifically a Black Cherry character). It will deliver the succulent fullness of cherry/berry charater and "wakes up" the fruity and berry character in Syrahs and other classic red blends.

A 4 oz bottle of Fruit Enhancer Plus will treat 125 gallons of wine with a low dosage or 47 gallons at a high dosage.
