Lallzyme EX-V

Lallzyme EX-V

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Lallzyme EX-V is an enzyme designed for use on premium red wines that are destined for long aging. Premium reds will benefit from the use of this enzyme tremendously, as it will result in a more structured wine, with deep, stable color.

Lallzyme EX-V is a pectinase with cellulase and hemicellulase side activities for red wines intended for aging. it has a specific action on both grape cell walls and cell membranes. This action allows for a complete and rapid release of anthocyanins and a more efficient release of tannins, leading to stable anthocyanin-tannin bonding. The end result of this bonding is a more structured wine, with a deep stable color that will last throughout its years of aging. Aromatic profile analysis indicates that Lallzyme EX-V increases the release of aromatic compounds while respecting the varietal characteristics of the grape.

Use .075 g/ gal must.

Store at room temperature, close to 25 C° (77 F°). Once rehydrated use within a few hours.

Would you consider adding this to a kit Amarone that came with grape skins? My plan is to age the wine for 2-3 years.
Benjamin Johnson on Jan 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I would not add Lallzyme EX-V to a wine kit - even for wine kits with grape skins.

This is a very good enzyme which draws, primarily, color from the grapes. It takes action on the grape skin cell walls and membrane. it won't do much of anything to the juice. The juice in the Amarone kit should already have its color established.

The grape pack will add body, flavor and sugar to the must. It won't contribute much color - if any. The grape pack is likely processed with a good dose of pectic enzyme. It's crushed grapes which appear somewhat dehydrated (very thick stuff) upon arrival. IMO Lallzyme EX-V it's not needed.

Good luck and enjoy. I am still aging the Amarone I made in 17. It continues to improve and is enjoyable.
Would you use this enzyme in combination with Lallzyme EX, or only one or the other?
Matt Telfer on Oct 28, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Best answered by the manufacturer but my interpretation is that you would use one or the other. Looks to me like they are same except EX-V has added characteristic of releasing more aromatic compounds in addition to the same other characteristics of EX. So if it were me I would decide based on what I wanted to do with respect to any desired additional aromatic character or not. If yes, then EX-V. If no, then EX.
Would this replace a "pectic enzyme" one would use when making fruit wines?
Benjamin V on Mar 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This is a great enzyme that will definitely break down the pectin that you would need to keep haze out and develop tannin in your fruit wines. This is specifically formulated to work in grape wines, so when working with other fruits that have thicker skins or more starchy/structured "meat" (like apples or pears) then you may need a little more.

A secret treasure
If you want to improve your wine from the first minute after crushing, this is the way. I am convinced that all commercial wine makers use a version of this. Your wine will have more color, more body and be far better over all after using an enzyme like this. Use it early before any tannin addition and it will work it's magic.

Morewine makes smaller amounts available, good for them. But try and enzyme like this once, and you will not make wine from grapes without it again.

Great Color Extraction
Used it multiple times for big red wines. Works wonders for color extraction. Use wit Opti-Red .

More juice, more color
I got significantly more juice out of my Nortons and Chambourcins with this enzyme vs. the basic Lalvin all-purpose liquid enzymes. And, it doesn't take much of it at all - resist the temptation to use more than directed.

With my grape quality this year less than desirable, I found that this gave my wine that added boost to make the quality acceptable.
