General Sensory Contribution
For Riesling and other aromatic whitesLalvin R-HST® was selected for its exceptional enological properties in Riesling from trials conducted from 1991 to 1996 in the Heiligenstein region of Austria. R-HST® has a short lag phase and generation time, even at cold temperatures. These features allow it to dominate and persist over spoilage yeast, such as Kloeckera apiculata. R-HST® retains fresh varietal character and emphasizes floral (rose) and mineral characteristics,while contributing body and mouthfeel for an overall complexity and elegance. R-HST® also produces crisp, premium white and Pinot noir wines that develop well over time.
