Product details

Lalvin 31™ was selected by the Institut Francais de la vigne et du vin (IFV), France and performs well under such stressful conditions of low pH or low temperature (as low as 13oC). Final colour density depends on the duration of malolactic fermentation. By being able to carry out MLF at low temperature, Lalvin 31™ gives the winemaker control to obtain wine with a higher colour density and stability. Lalvin 31™ is noted for its good sensory balance in red and white wines. Diacetyl production; low in co-inoculation; low-moderate in sequential inoculation
