DetailsWine Tannin will improve the flavor of a dull wine. Tannin can be used with white wines that have not been exposed to oak to add astringency. Wine tannin can also add an earthy flavor to red wines. Use in conjunction with gelatin or isinglass for later fining as well.

Its important that it get mixed in well.November 27, 2013Good and CheapGreat for adding back that certain something back to the body of your wine that fruits just seem to lack. Make sure you use it sparingly!December 31, 2012Use SparinglyThis stuff adds an earthy taste back to your wine. Excellent price, Great Quality. As stated in the other review, use sparingly!February 18, 2013Adds astringency and structure to your wineI use this occasionally, as some wines are a bit lacking in flavor. It doesn't take much to enhance the flavor of a wine. It's a good product because it has allowed me to noticeably improve them.March 2, 2013Improves complexityThis tannin is good for some of the wine bases that lack tannins. Use it sparingly, and it will add structure and astringency. It wont add flavor - you need to use quality base for that.March 31, 2013It worksSome of my wines are just a little flat, they are missing something. I add a little Tannin to help restore the balance, enhancing the body and flavor by adding astringency.June 5, 2013Can save some winesOccasionally my wines lack body and structure. I can sometimes save them by adding tannins. I've also ruined wines by adding too many tannins so it's important to measure accurately, and to taste the wine as you are adding the tannins. I use a smaller amount and a micro gram scale, to find what tastes best, then scale up.July 14, 2013Improves flat wineI use this for some flat wines that are low in Tannins. Just use a little at a time and see how the structure and taste evolve because you can't undo it unless you use a lot of Gelatin. (I know because I've had that happen to me)September 20, 2013Great additionI got this to make some Skeeter Pee and it has turned out great. The tannins did a lot to improve the flavor. Definitely recommended.October 14, 2013just the thing for dull wineUsing just a little adds structure and makes a dull wine come to life. It doesn't change the taste, it changes the way you taste the wine.October 23, 2013

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 2 answersWHEN CAN YOU ADD WINE TANNIN ?BEST ANSWER: I typically add tannin when I am mixing the ingredients that comprise the must, and only when a recipe calls for it. (For instance, in my fruit wines, it is called for in peach and apple wine, but not in cherry or raspberry.) However, I have a winemaking book that talks about using it for clarifying (fining) wine, which means it would be added during the later stages of the wine. I must confess that I have never used it for that purpose. I have used LD Carlson's Sparkolloid Powder for clarifying with great success. Hope this helps!
