Fining agents in winemaking can be used for many purposes, including clarification and filterability improvement, prevention of haze and sediment formation, color adjustment, and the removal of undesirable elements, aromas and flavors from wine. Each fining agent has specific properties and reacts with various wine constituents depending on its chemical properties, density of charge and molecular weight. Enartis offers a wide range of products that, in addition to classic protein and inorganic fining agents, includes specific formulations for must clarification and flotation, fining agents for the selective removal of unwanted compounds and Plantis, a line of fining agents free of animal proteins, suitable for vegetarian and vegan wines.
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.

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.
