Description Details Safe handling

Vinozym® Vintage FCE is a blend of pectinases and hemicellulases with a cellulase, a protease and RGases. his leads to unique enzyme activity that allows your wines to keep their color, even after fermentation and maturation. Vinozym® Vintage FCE also improves overall flavor profile. It does this by extracting smooth tannins from the skin and polysaccharides from the pulp. That improves soft tannin extraction by 15%, with no increase in astringency. 

Vinozym Vintage FCE delivers a 5-10% increase in throughput and free-run wine release at the end of alcohol fermentation. It also cuts maceration time by 30%. This limits mechanical work such as pumping. It also cuts cold pre-fermentation maceration by 30-100%. It can even eliminate the cold soak process. That means you can produce fruity red wines with just one day of cooling instead of the two needed in non-enzymatic processes.
