White Wine

Slow white fermenter with early onset of post fermentation autolysis to yield roundness and complexity to support primary fruit. The reference yeast for premium white Burgundy

An isolate from Burgundy, CY3079 was selected by the Bureau Interprofessional des Vins de Bourgogne (BIVB) with the objective of finding a strain that would complement the quality and aromatic expression of typical white Burgundy styles. Typically used for barrel or tank fermentation of Chardonnay for maturation, or as a component of blends. Induces a rapid development on lees of yeast derived flavours (toasted bread, honey, hazelnut and almond) and roundness. CY3079 exhibits a short lag time and moderate fermentation vigour, but fermentation finish can be slow
