Product details

Originating from the Geisenheim Research Institute, AMH™ is a favorite for making Riesling, Pinot noir and Zinfandel. It is considered a color-friendly yeast that enhances spicy (clove, nutmeg) and fruit flavors and aromas while adding positive, smooth mouthfeel to the overall complexity. AMH™ has a long lag phase and a slow to medium fermentation rate. Therefore, a well-managed nutrient program during rehydration and fermentation is essential. Good ferment domination is obtained with AMH™ if the culture is allowed to develop in about 10% of the total must volume for 8 hours before final inoculation. Very malolactic bacteria compatible.
