Untainted Wine For Good
Since 2004, we have been providing winemakers around the world with a unique single-pass treatment process to remove the ‘musty, moldy’ aroma of TCA (2,4,6, Trichloroanisole) and TBA (2,4,6, Tribromoanisole).
The wine passes through a system of filter media canisters that targets TCA/TBA and all related anisoles. Once again, this is a gentle, ‘once-through’ filtration, and wine quality is untouched . One barrel to large volumes can be processed.
Potential Causes Of TCA
There’s quite a few but be particularly aware of chlorinated process water, barrels, wooden pallets, corks, filter media, oak chips, packaging products and wooden structures.
Cork Taint Problem! What Do I Do?
First, send a sample of your suspect wine in a foil capped, glass container to a reputable lab. Then, if the results aren’t good, send us two 750ml sample bottles for a TCA removal test. We’ll have a result back to you in 2 days.
