Description: TANIRAISIN is a grape skin tannin. Vinquiry says, "It maintains red wine color by increasing the intensity and lowering the 420/520 absorbance ratio." Is this a recommended Tannin, i.e. do you use it for fine wine?
This is one of the tannins we tested, interestingly with Bordeaux varietal winemakinngin Sonoma County, where we are very sensitive to the aromatics. This produced the best result, leaving the wine's aromatics intact. Moreover, it is a grape tannin.
Reviewed By Larry Enologist
I have experimented extensively with tannin adjuncts with Pinot Noir. Taniraisin purports to be the ideal tannin because it is from grapes. So we compared it to other tannins. In a blind experiment submitted to Enologix for analysis we found that it did not change any of the Tannin, whereas Tannin VR Supra did change the Tannin concentration in the same wine.
