Product details

ENOFERM SYRAH™ is a Côtes du Rhône isolate particularly recommended for Shiraz, Merlot and Carignan styles. Enhances mouthfeel and promotes stable colour extraction. Best suited for warm to hot climate fruit. Tends to produce high levels of β-damascenone, which promotes violet and red fruit aromas (raspberries, cassis, strawberries). Other aromas include black pepper and spiciness. Generally, ENOFERM SYRAH™ enhances and respects varietal character. It is a high glycerol producer, hence contributes a round palate structure. Other recommended varieties include Barbera, Nebbiolo and Sangiovese. Exhibits rapid onset of fermentation.

Selected by from the Côte du Rhône, France
