Product details

ENOFERM™ was selected by the Institut Technique du Vin (ITV) in France from spontaneous malolactic fermentations showing good fermentation activity and sensory contribution. ENOFERM ALPHA™ is a dominant strain and has the capacity to achieve reliable MLF. Contrary to spontaneous MLF, the contribution of ENOFERM ALPHA™ to white wine is usually described as enhancing the mouthfeel, while respecting the wine’s varietal character. The lower perception of green and vegetative flavours is the result of the very positive impact of ENOFERM ALPHA™ on wine complexity. ENOFERM ALPHA™ is a bio-protection tool to protect wines against Brettanomyces when inoculated as soon as possible to prevent the excessive growth of the spoilage yeast.
