FT Blanc Soft
Oxidation protection and mouthfeel enhancement for white wine
Scott’TanTM FT Blanc Soft is similar to FT Blanc in application but wines made with it are also characterized by softness and improved mouthfeel. White and rosé wines made with FT Blanc Soft have enhanced texture with a perception of sweetness on the palate. Even relatively small dosages can contribute to minerality in wines. Similar improvements can be seen in fruit and mead wines.
To Use: Add FT Blanc Soft directly on the grapes at the crusher. It can also be added to the juice or wine during a tank mixing. Good homogenization is important. If an addition of FT Blanc Soft is made post-fermentation, we recommend waiting 3-6 weeks after the tannin addition before racking, fining, filtering or bottling.
Storage: Dated expiration. Unopened the shelf life is 5 years at 18ºC(65ºF). Once opened keep tightly sealed and dry.

FT Blanc Soft gall nut tannin additions are highly beneficial during rot management of white and rose wines. They act as an anti-oxidant thereby helping to minimize the oxidative damage from laccase.Downloads
