These products promote rapid settlement of yeast's to form compact sediments.
VINCLEAR will remove certain astringents and harsh flavours in wines without affecting the esters or fruity bouquet.
Add VINCLEAR to the wine whenever it remains cloudy after fermentation and racking.
Many types of finings are available, but for hundreds of years isinglass has been a most reliable treatment for clearing both beer and wine.
Although isinglass is convenient to apply in the liquid form, there has always been concern over its shelf life.
From the time of manufacture, it begins to deteriorate, a simple analogy being that of a charged battery that begins to discharge upon standing.
Isinglass liquid also denature rapidly, with consequent loss of fining properties, when exposed to temperatures above 20C, even for short periods of time.
VINCLEAR tubs are available in freeze-dried powder form.
This advanced product can be stored almost indefinitely at any temperature and still remain 100% active.
VINCLEAR is a highly effective fining reagent, containing a mixture of both freeze-dried isinglass, Malto-dextrin, Potassium Metabisulphite and Malic Acid.
