Yeast Derivative Nutrient - For increased color stability, integrated mouthfeel and roundness in red wines; OMRI listed

OPTI-MUM RED™ helps to produce wines with intense color, a rounder, softer mouthfeel, and a decreased perception of astringency.
  • Early additions of OPTI-MUM RED lead to more stable color due to reactions between early-released color molecules (anthocyanins), phenolic compounds (tannins), and polysaccharides (OPTI-MUM RED)
  • Reduces the perception of green, astringent tannins in cool-climate or low maturity fruit
  • Reduces the sensation of hotness in high alcohol wines
  • The mannoprotein portion of this autolyzed yeast helps soften mouthfeel
  • The yeast strain behind OPTI-MUM RED was specifically selected and fully autolyzed for its highly reactive high molecular weight polysaccharides and oligosaccharides

Recommended Dosage: 20-40 g/hL (1.7-3.4 lb/1000 gal)
Usage: Mix OPTI-MUM RED in 10 times its weight of water or juice and add directly to the grapes or
must. If adding later in fermentation, add during a pump-over or during tank mixings. This product is
mostly soluble. Stir to maintain suspension before and during addition.
Storage: Dated expiration. Store in a cool, dry environment at 18°C (65°F). Once opened, keep tightly
sealed and dry.
