ENZYMATIC PREPARATION FOR THE MUST SETTLING OF WHITE & ROSÉ WINES

Safizym® Clar Plus is used for white & rosé must settling prior to alcoholic fermentation. Its specific enzymatic activities destabilize the haze by hydrolyzing the pectins of the must: the colloids agglomerate themselves & precipitate while also dragging some thick particles along that are detrimental to the organoleptic quality of the wine. Enzymatic preparation produced by a selected Aspergillus niger strain.

SAFIZYM® CLAR PLUS technical features

The clarification of the must is faster and the obtained turbidity is optimum for a good fermentation. The removal of the pectins (fouling colloids) will subsequently ease the filtration.

Additionnally, Safizym® Clar Plus is also recommended
– on must from the last pressing cycle
– on musts highly charged in pectins and various particles
– for a depectinization of musts prior to a clarification by flotation

Activity conditions

  • Pectinases*: Endo polygalacturonase (> 1750 PG/g), pectin methyl esterase (> 350 PE/g) & pectin lyase (> 50 PL/g)
  • Active under oenological conditions (pH, SO2)
  • Depectinization at low temperature (> 8°C)

(*): method available on demand.

Effects

Optimized clarification of white & rosé musts:
  • Hydrolyzes pectin chains in the musts thanks to the polygalacturonase, endopolygalacturonase & pectin esterase
  • activities
  • Leads to a fast settling down of rough & thin lees
  • Limited effect allowing maintaining the turbidity and facilitating a good fermentation
  • Concentrated preparation optimizing productivity
  • No secondary activities that could harm wines organoleptic quality

Usage

Dilute the wanted dose in 10 times its own weight of water or must. This solution should not be stored more than a few hours. Incorporate the whole volume in the must that needs to be depectinized at the beginning of the tank filling. This supply will be homogenized during a pumping over or using micro oxygenation.
