Enzymes for maceration

Improve the flavor and color of your wines

Wine Maceration Hero

Produce higher quality whites, rosés and reds

Our enzymes help you get more from your maceration process. They give all red wines more intense, stable colors. In long-maturation red wines, they maximize color and free-run juice release. They also improve flavor profile and mouthfeel. In long-maturation white wines and rosés they maximize flavor release, press capacity and free-run juice volume.

Processing benefits in mash treatment

Our maceration solutions for red wines cut maceration time and can even eliminate the cold-soak process. That allows you to produce fruity reds with just one day of cooling. In maceration of white wines and rosés, our enzymes allow you work at lower pressure. That both increases press capacity and reduces damage to grape skins.
