There have been very few products that I have looked forward to as much as the Zenith line. Cold stability can be very expensive, time intensive and very inexact. Both Zenith Uno and Zenith Color offer cost-effective alternatives to traditional cold stabilization methods.
My initial impressions of EnartisZym EZFilter from Enartis are very promising. Cider is notorious for being difficult to filter. I am trying to turn over 8,500 gallons of cider in a 25 day period (fermentation to bottle ready cider) with one assistant and two plate and frame filters. One dose with EnartisZym EZFilter pre-fermentation and we were able to move from 8 microns to .4 microns with great efficiency in a short amount of time.
We’ve filtered hundreds of thousands of gallons of cider over the years and there is no question that ciders treated with both a pectinase and a glucanase filter more easily than those that are not. If the dosing and timing is right, we’ve literally seen a 40-50-60% increase in filtration speeds. EnartisZym EZFilter alone worked just as well as what we’ve seen from separate pectinase and glucanase enzyme treatments.
Q Citrus. Extremely efficient yeast ensuring constant fermentation at cool (12°C) temperatures. One of the few types of yeast that are aptly named as it produces wines that are full and well balanced with aromas of lemon- and orange peel along with citrus. Well suited to Chenin blanc and Colombard and on wines where extremely Iow residual sugars are required. Since starting to use it 4 years ago we have placed increasing orders in subsequent vintages!
I have been using Enartis nutrients almost exclusively for 6 years, and my copper sulfate purchases have dropped significantly, as well as my restart products.
Top Essence . Ek wou bietjie wegbreek van die industrie-gedomineerde giste, wat oor die laaste paar jaar nie juis in ons kelder beindruk het nie. Ek het Top Essence op my Sauvignon Blanc en Chenin Blanc gebruik en ongelooflike resultate gekry. Beste vruguitdrukking in jare en dit trek deur na die palet. Ek het dit selfs in van my vate gebruik en die resultate was beter as verwag. In 2019 sal ek moeilik iets anders as EnartisFerm Top Essence Top Essence op die wit kultivars gebruik.
To be able to ensure a fast, clean and complete secondary fermentation in sparkling wine production is key to a successful bottle of bubbles. Nutriferm Revelarom is a fantastic product and I would recommend it to anyone who makes sparkling wine!
Surlì One was a game changer for my 2015 Merlot. It improved the mouthfeel, filled-up the mid-palate, and increased the overall perception of roundness and length of the wine.
Enartis Ferm Q Citrus gave my wines incredible aromatics and massive sensory expression. We frequently perceive distinct notes of pineapple, orange and guava. Enartis Ferm Q Citrus reminds me of landing in Hawaii!
I love the fruity and clean aromas that WS gives to the wine.
We use Cellogum L on our whites and rosés whenever possible. It is the best alternative to chilling for tartrate stabilization and it doesn’t impact the mouthfeel of the wine. Enartis offers the CMC Panel to test if Cellogum L can be used and how much is required to stabilize the wine. They make it easy and convenient – that’s one of the reasons we will continue to use it for years to come.
We started using Claril SP while experimenting with hyperoxidation four vintages ago. Since then, Claril SP has become an SOP for all our hyper-oxidized juices. Up front it helps with settling, lees compaction, and of course color, but in the long run we are making consistently cleaner and better tasting wines that require less work in the finishing stages.
In 2017, I used Enartis Ferm WS on our 2017 Zinfandel and 25% of our Cabernet Sauvignon to produce intense color, rich mouthfeel and balanced tannin structure and was very happy with the results.
Tartaric stability has always been a challenge in winemaking and sometimes is a source of tough decisions right before bottling. Last year, we started encouraging and assisting our customers to use in-line dosing following the final filter; Cellogum L for white wine and Maxigum and Cellogum L for red wine. This practice implied considerable savings in terms of economy and time. Thanks to Enartis, we are happy to provide this convenient tool to winemakers to help them achieve perfect stability in the bottle without the concern of blockage of membranes.
The Enartis Ferm D20 has improved the mouthfeel of our wines while delivering a more balanced wine that had increased phenolics.
PLANTIS AF. This product exceeded my expectations! lt had an amazing effect on our wine’s overall appearance and palate. The colour of the white Wine improved and amazing fining effect on impurities.
I will defiantly recommend this product to other winemakers in the industry. At Boland Cellar we are more than happy with Enartis’s service and business ethics — it is excellent.
If you want to be a winner, you surround yourself with winners and like-minded people. Make winning a part of your life. Implement it and do not settle for ordinary. Be extraordinary – like the Enartis products. One of the very reasons I used these products this year and will continue to in the future.
Nutriferm Arom Plus. Far and away the best performing complex yeast nutrition in the market! Added whilst preparing the fermentation starter it ensures a complete and steady fermentation, assisting the yeast in fermentation to produce a complex flavor profile in any wine style.
We wanted to say thanks for the great service and friendly staff. We are very happy with all your products from yeast to stabilization. You have a great team indeed! Looking forward to many years of business to come!
l’ve been using Enartis as a supplier for a little over two years, with Helana being my contact person. lt is always a pleasure doing business with Enartis and contacting Helana. The service is excellent and she understands the urgency for deliveries during harvest time. She will make an effort to speed up deliveries and will always inform me when delivery will take place. She will always do her best to accommodate our requests. I will continue ordering from Enartis, they have great quality products, excellence knowledge and fantastic personnel. Keep up the good work!
It displays an extraordinary capability of scavenging oxygen and radicals, chelating metals and slightly reducing wine redox potential. For its characteristics, EnartisTan SLI can be used in synergy or as an alternative to SO2 to protect wine from oxidation and to improve its shelf life.
Zenith Color is an effective, rapid and easy-to-use tool for potassium bitartrate and color stabilization of red and rosé wines. It assures no changes in quality or characteristics of wine with full color and tartaric stabilization in a single addition. Zenith Color does not significantly modify wine filterability and can be added before microfiltration.
