Product details

LALVIN SENSY™ is a new generation wine yeast to express the sensory properties of varietal white wines. It has been characterized and selected for its very low capacity to produce H2S, SO2, and acetaldehyde, with the security to complete alcoholic fermentation especially when varietal aroma is sought after. Recommended for Pinot Gris, Semillon, Chardonnay and Colombard. The low acetaldehyde production by LALVIN SENSY™ helps to moderate SO2 use.

Selected by ICV Group, Lallemand oenology, SupAgro and INRA Montpellier collaborative study
