Specific Inactivated Yeasts
Selected by the Universitad de Santiago de Chile (USACH)
General Sensory Contribution
Enhances varietal aromas and some mouthfeel
Impacts on the expression of terpenes and thiols. Recommended for Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.FLAVIA is a pure culture of Metschnikowia pulcherrima, selected from nature by Universitad de Santiago de Chile (USACH), for its specific property to release enzymes with arabinofuranisidase activity. When used in sequential inoculation with a compatible selected Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strain, FLAVIA will impact on the production of varietal aromas such as terpenes and volatile thiols. It is the enzymatic activity of M. pulcherrima that gives the desired outcomes. The best results are achieved when FLAVIA is sequentially inoculated with a Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain which is a high terpene / thiol releaser / converter. Suggested varieties include Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. Described as freshness with mouthfeel. *See a Lallemand representative to discuss a suitable paired Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
