Product details

Adding selected bacteria triggers malolactic fermentation for white and rosé wines. INOBACTER™ is used following a three stage protocol (reactivation, acclimatisation and seeding the tank) which enables bacteria to adapt to the lowest pHs. INOBACTER™ can be used as co-inoculation with yeast or inoculated after the completion of alcoholic fermentation The excellent tolerance of this strain to extreme wine conditions enables an effective malic acid metabolism.
