Extracts phenolic compounds which favour enhancement of tannin structure.Selected by Inter-Rhône from a culture collection of over 600 different yeasts from vineyards in the Rhône Valley, Rhône 2323 is highly suited for the making of premium / semi-premium red wines from musts with high polyphenolic potential. Recommended varieties including Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. Efficient extraction of phenolic compounds favours enhancement of tannin structure. Produces varietal aromas of liquorice and blackcurrant, and maintains relatively moderate colour intensity.
