Product details

A French isolate, ENOFERM SIMI WHITE™ is used for fruity white wine, particularly Chenin Blanc, Riesling, and rosé style wines. Also known for its aroma and flavour contribution to Chardonnay it has been described as contributing creamy fruit characters. ENOFERM SIMI WHITE™ has a fermentation temperature range 15°-30°C, but will ferment slowly at 10°-13°C once active fermentation is established. Due to foaming tendencies, not recommended for barrel fermentation unless evaluated for foaming under individual winery situations.

Selected by Institut Pasteur and from the University of California, Davis culture collection.
