Saccharomyces Bayanus – Ideal for crisp, fresh dry white/blush and all sparkling wines. Also the best strain for high alcohol tolerance. CL23 produces very low levels of fusel oils and other congener compounds during fermentation and so does not contribute much to wine flavour or aroma and can therefore be considered to be a particularly neutral / clean fermenter.
AW4 is noted for developing powerfully fragrant, full spice aromatic wines and is a perfect match for Gewurztraminer and also recommended for Sauvignon and Semillon where the Oenologist requires a positive aromatic esters contribution from the yeast.
Saccharomyces Cerevisiae var. Bayanus. Specially for the fermentation of high alcohol wines. Ferments consistently, even at lower temperatures, with low residual sugar. Very good results with Pinot Gris and Chardonnay wines. Wide temperature range: 10-30 °C. Alcohol tolerance: 16 % vol. Contains the 'killer' factor to inhibit wild yeasts.
Lalvin Bourgovin RC 212 Professional Winemaking Yeast. This is the product used by professional wineries. This is a 5g foil sachet. 5g is the amount for any quantity of wine up to 23 litres.
Saccharomyces Cerevisiae var. Cerevisiae. Specially selected for the fermentation of white table wines with preservation of the natural aroma (produces very little secondary aromas). Alcohol tolerance up to 14 % vol. Temperature range: 18-30 °C. Dosage: 2-3 g/10 litres.
The ICV-K1 has been isolated in 1972 by Pierre Barre of the INRA Montpellier. When fermented at low temperatures (below 16°C) and with the right addition of nutrients, ICV-K1 is one of the more floral ester producing yeast (isoamyl acetate, hexyl acetate, phenyl ethyl acetate). These esters bring fresh, floral aromas to neutral varieties or high yield grapes.
Lalvin ICV-D47 is a Côtes du Rhône isolate for the production of full-bodied, barrel fermented Chardonnay and other white varietals. When left on lees, ripe, spicy aromas with tropical and citrus notes are developed. ICV-D47 is a high polysaccharide producer known to accentuate fruit characteristics and bring volume and complexity to white wines.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. bayanus. Yeast that provides a neutral fermentation with a high sulphite resistance (up to 25-30 mg free SO2 per litre). Ensures a consistent and persistent fermentation. Also in case of stalled wines, re-fermentation and sparkling wines and for second fermentation in beers. Temperature range: 15-30 °C. Alcohol tolerance: up to 17 % vol.
