General Sensory Contribution
Enhances Varietal Character
The perfect fermenterUvaferm BDX® (Bordeaux Red) yeast is a French isolate used extensively in California and Australia since the late 1980's. Uvaferm BDX® has perfect fermentation kinetics and does not generate a lot of heat during fermentation. It is highly recommended for the production of quality red wines, especially Merlot, Cabernet sauvignon, Zinfandel, Cabernet franc and Syrah with minimum color loss and enhanced flavor and aroma. This yeast is associated with varietal flavor enhancement of red wines adding considerable complexity without dominating the wine with yeast produced aroma and flavor compounds. Provides very good color extraction.
