MICROCONTROL® and BACTIControl®
Two new bio-control tools for wine during ageing.
The protection of wines against spoilage micro-organisms requires a particular attention, especially in SO2 reduction processes or in the absence of sulphiting. Thanks to the success of OENOBrett® to fight against Brettanomyces and to broaden its range of solutions, LAFFORT® now offers two specific new bio-control formulations for the microbial stabilization of wines. MICROControl® and BACTIControl® are used on wine and will protect them during ageing.
Ensuring that your wine is clear and stable is crucial for the market. It’s what consumers expect and demand.
Thanks to our research, LAFFORT® discovered the role of mannoproteins in the protein and tartaric stability of wine. This led to a selection of the specific mannoprotein fractions, extracted by enzymes from yeast cell walls according to a patented process (patent n° 2726284), and to the launch of MANNOSTAB® in 2006, which was awarded the gold medal for innovation at the VINITECH trade show that year. Since then LAFFORT® continues its fundamental and applied research in an effort to understand the natural phenomena behind instability and stabilisation, and from there offer a range of accurate, powerful tools.
LAFFORT® can offer a full range of products to stabilise your wines, for microbiological, protein, colour, and tartaric stabilisation. Also have a look at our fining range for colouring matter stabilisation!
