The secure choice for light, fresh, crisp whites

Lalvin V1116 ™ was isolated in 1972 by Pierre Barre of the INRA Montpellier. V1116 ™ tends to express the freshness of white grape varieties. Natural fresh fruit aromas are retained for longer, compared to wines fermented with standard yeast (such as Prise de Mousse). When fermented at low temperatures (below 16°C) and with the right addition of nutrients, V1116 ™ is one of the more flowery ester producers (isoamyl acetate, hexyl acetate and phenyl ethyl acetate). Among the high ester producers, V1116 (K1)™ is the most resistant to difficult fermentation conditions, such as low turbidity, low temperature and low fatty acid content. V1116 ™ is recommended for the fermentation of icewines. It can also be used for rosé or basic red wines. Not malolactic-bacteria compatible. Low vinyl phenol production (POF-).
