Product details

LALVIN R-HST™ was selected for its exceptional enological properties in Riesling from trials conducted from 1991 to 1996 in the Heiligenstein region of Austria. R-HST™ has a short lag phase and generation time, even at cold temperatures. These features allow it to dominate and persist over spoilage yeast, such as Kloeckera apiculata. R-HST™ retains fresh varietal character and emphasizes floral (rose) and mineral characteristics, while contributing body and mouthfeel for an overall complexity and elegance. R-HST™ also produces crisp, premium white and Pinot noir wines that develop well over time.

Selected by the Heiligenstein region in Austria
