Increases roundness in red wines

Opti-MUM Red™ is a part of the newest generation of yeast derived nutrients. Opti-MUM Red is sourced from a specific known wine yeast that is naturally high in polysaccharides. Adding Opti-MUM Red at the beginning of fermentation increases the availability of polysaccharides at a time when polyphenols are being released and diffused. This maximizes the formation of polyphenol-polysaccharides chains. Using Opti-MUM Red results in red wines that are more intense in color, have more rounded mouthfeel, and a decreased perception of astringency.

Mix with 10 times its weight in water or must and add at start of fermentation. Use 1.1 grams per gallon.

Store at 65F.  Keep dry and tightly sealed.
