Pectic Enzyme -
recommended for all fresh fruit wines. Add the Pectic Enzyme to the juice prior to the fermentation process in order to enhance the clarification process. It destroys haze-causing pectin cells that can leave a wine with a permanent milky appearance known as a “pectin haze”. You can also add to crushed fruit to increase the extraction of body and color from the pulp during the primary fermentation and pressing. All fruits have pectin and it’s the milky gel that holds a fruit’s fiber together, trapping the fruit’s character within.

Citric Acid is the primary acid found in fruits such as oranges, lemons and pineapples. It is typically used in wines that are naturally lacking in acid.
Tartaric Acid is the primary acid found in fruits such as grapes, raisins and sultanas. It is typically used in wines that are naturally lacking in acid. Wines too low in acid are flat tasting. Tartaric Acid adds a liveliness to the wine and helps to bring out it`s fruity flavors. Also, having the proper level of acidity will help to establish a vigorous fermentation.
