Product details

The ITV, in collaboration with Lallemand, selected Uvaferm SVG™ from the Loire region specifically for the enhancement of typical Sauvignon blanc varietal character, diminished acidity and good fermentation kinetics. SVG™ will metabolize roughly 25% of the malic acid, helping to naturally lower acidity. In tastings of Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé wines fermented with different yeasts, those fermented with SVG™ scored higher than the wines fermented with other yeasts commonly used for Sauvignon blanc. These Sauvignon blanc wines were described as having more intensity and a better balance of mineral, citrus and spicy notes. SVG™ is also recommended for aromatic white varieties, such as Riesling or Pinot gris.
