LALVIN ICV OKAY®Wins a 'Palmarès de l’Innovation' Citation Award from SITEVI 2013
The new wine yeast, Lalvin ICV OKAY®, received a Citation Award in the category of Innovation from SITEVI 2013.
Lalvin ICV OKAY ® is the result of a collaborative study between the scientific INSTITUT COOPERATIF DU VIN ICV Group, Lallemand, SupAgro and INRA Montpellier. The innovation is based on successive backcrosses between an excellent fermenting wine yeast and a yeast with very low production of sulfur compounds such as H2S. The resulting Lalvin ICV OKAY ® yeast combines reliable fermentation performance and very low production of SO2, H2S and acetaldehyde. Lalvin ICV OKAY ® is recommended for aromatic white and rosé wines, ensuring low levels of volatile acidity, promoting aromatic esters andbringing freshness and balance in the mouth.
