Enhance Protect Preserve


We offer a fully-dissolvable vinification and fining tannin for red and white wine. RDNT utilises the properties of indigenous plant materials by optimising the high polyphenol content without imparting flavour or bitterness. It enhances fining, body, structure, colour protection, freshness and fruitiness.

Reduced- and No-Sulphur added wines:

The potent anti-oxidative properties of RDNT Genesis negate the need to add SO2 – allowing winemakers to produce wines with sulphur levels of less than 10ppm or reduce the levels of sulphur added to wines if they choose. The ease of use of the tannin is also o‌ne of its biggest assets and removes the difficulties associated with producing sulphur-free wine.


RDNT Genesis tannin can be used in combination with sulphur to ENHANCE the quality of the wine. However, As winemakers become more au fait with our tannin and start to see the INCREASED BENEFITS around PRESERVATION and PROTECTION - the need for sulphur will decrease as more of the natural fruitiness and fresh flavours of the wine is unleashed by RDNT Genesis making the transition to “No Sulphur Added” wines a gradual, easy, natural and advantageous progression.
