General Sensory Contribution
For structure, color and spicinessLalvin Rhône 2056® was selected by the IFV (Institut Français de la Vigne et du Vin) for its ability to maintain varietal fruit aromas and flavors of Côtes du Rhône varieties. It demonstrates good alcohol tolerance as well as low SO2 and VA production over a wide temperature range. Lalvin Rhône 2056® is a quick to moderate rate fermenter with a relatively high nutrient requirement. It benefits greatly from rehydration with Go-Ferm® and the addition of Fermaid K/E®. Lalvin Rhône 2056® maintains good color stability and is excellent for forward fruit style reds.
