Scott’Tan™ FT Rouge Soft is a proprietary tannin specifically formulated for its gentle impact. It is particularly suitable for Pinot Noir and early-to-release wines. FT Rouge Soft is reactive with natural grape proteins and thus helps promote optimal color and color stability while enhancing structure. Mouthfeel and roundness are improved while the potential for bitter characters is reduced. FT Rouge Soft provides anti-oxidative protection.
Gradually sprinkle FT Rouge Soft directly on grapes at the crusher or add to the must during the pump-over to obtain good homogenization. If subsequent additions of FT Rouge Soft are desired, this can be done in increments of 0.5 lb/1000 gal (63 ppm) during pump-overs. If an addition of FT Rouge Soft is made post-fermentation, we recommend waiting 3-6 weeks after the tannin addition before racking, fining, filtering or bottling.
