Product details

An isolate from Burgundy, CY3079 was selected by the Bureau Interprofessional des Vins de Bourgogne (BIVB) with the objective of finding a strain that would complement the quality and aromatic expression of typical white Burgundy styles. Typically used for barrel or tank fermentation of Chardonnay for maturation, or as a component of blends. Induces a rapid development on lees of yeast derived flavours (toasted bread, honey, hazelnut and almond) and roundness. CY3079 exhibits a short lag time and moderate fermentation vigour, but fermentation finish can be slow
