New Vintage Products

This year Esvin have introduced a range of new vintage products.  These include:

Fining agents

  • Origin SH– Next generation fining agent  which acts on the heavy metals present in musts and releases reducing compounds, thus limiting thiol breakdown.
  • Origin Fmax– Specific formulation for preventive and curative treatment of white and rosé musts and wines with regard to oxidation. More effective at removing polyphenols than PVPP.
  • KTS Flot– non animal based fining agent with very fast kinetic compared to Gelatine ( up to 6 x faster than pork gelatine in most trials) forms compact cap and has very good organoleptic properties compared to most other fining products used for flotation

 

Yeast

  • SELECTYS THIOL–  is is a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolated in Italy and selected  using an innovative genetic identification program. The aim of the program was to verify that this strain does carry the nucleotide sequence (+ 38 bases) on the IRC7 gene coding for the protein connected to thiol expression (β-lyase activity).
    After three years of trials to validate the strain in the wine-growing regions most recognised for
    their production of wines with thiol character, and thanks to the Oenofrance®’s R&D
    department, they were able to verify its ability to bring out aromatic notes of:
    – 4-Mercapto-4-Methylpentan-2-one (4MMP): boxwood, broom, blackcurrant bud, tomato leaf
    – 3-Mercapto-1-Hexanol (3MH): passion fruit, pineapple, grapefruit
    – 3-Mercapto-Hexyle acetate (A3MH): exotic fruits, guava, citrus zest
