"Hi Andy, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We were positive for Pectins on the Chard and Pinot Noir that just went to bottling. The addition of the enzyme ( even though not yours at this time) cleaned up the wines, and we were able to filter through the 2 micron filters reducing the NTUs to our bottling specs without any trouble at all. These were in totes and I ensured we filtered from the top then to the bottom valve. We have since put into practice the checking of the wines for Pectins and Glucans and have found several of the 2016 being racked out of barrels are testing positive for Pectins. It will be fresh on our minds so that we are able to address the additions on the Crush Pad moving forward. Thank you again so much for the information, the service and just overall attention to our wines! I will be looking at the filters we have in stock and will need to place an order. We are targeting the next round of filtering on these wines the last week of August.
