Enartis presents Zenith®: the revolution in wine stabilisation

The Italian multinational hits a milestone in environmental sustainability with a new product that puts an end to cold stabilisation. The product can save wineries up to 80% of energy and drinking water, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 90%.

Enartis, part of the Esseco Group, which operates in the world winemaking market, announces the introduction of Zenith®, a range of revolutionary products based on potassium polyaspartate (A-5D K/SD) for tartrate and colour stabilisation in wine at every level of instability.

Authorised on October 28th this year by the European Union, following the approval by EFSA-European Food Safety Authority - and OIV International Organization of Vine and Wine, Zenith® is now entering the market with a diversified range for red, rosé, white and sparkling wines.

Zenith® is the end of cold stabilisation, as per the results of research carried out for more than six years by prestigious international institutes and universities. The intrinsic properties of potassium polyaspartate, a polyaminoacid produced from L-aspartic acid, an amino acid naturally present in grapes, make it possible for Zenith® to maintain total tartrate and colour stability over time, able to withstand thermal stress and inhibiting the formation of tartrate crystals, without altering the organoleptic properties of wines. Zenith® requires minimal use of energy, drinking water and manpower thanks to its simplicity and rapid application.

"In addition to ensuring more stable wines and allowing  wineries to remain competitive, which are obvious benefits for the entire winemaking sector, Zenith® is a milestone in environmental sustainability" - Samuele Benelli, Business Director, Enartis International. "We have calculated that wineries can save up to 80% of energy and drinking water, and greenhouse gas emissions can be cut by 90% simply by using this product."

Zenith®, which enters the family of Enartis stabilisers after metatartaric acid, gum arabic, resins, mannoproteins and CMC, is the result of complex and meticulous work that started in 2011 with research on potassium polyaspartate and evolved into the StabiWine project. This involved the collaboration of prestigious research institutes, universities and international winemaking industries, including the University of Milan, University of Turin, University of Zaragoza, Council for Agricultural Research and Economics (CREA), the Italian Association for Organic Agriculture (AIAB), Australian Wine Research Institute, Institut Rhodanien, Vinidea and the Institut Francais de la Vigne et du Vin (IFV).

"Skills utilised on a global level, the ability to harness them into concrete use and the relationships developed with prestigious institutions around the world have enabled Enartis to inaugurate a new era of oenology"  -  Gianni Triulzi, R&D Manager of Enartis.
