Product details

Lalvin 71B® was isolated by the INRA (National Agricultural Research Institute) in Narbonne, France. 71B® is used for making blush and semi-sweet wines with tropical fruit character. Longlived aromas are due to its production of relatively stable esters and higher alcohol levels; 71B® also softens high-acid musts by partially metabolizing malic acid. Very malolactic-bacteria compatible.
