Silka 1-Step™

Selected by ICVV, Spain

Oenococcus oeni

Vino tinto

For silky red wines and MLF in oak

SILKA™ was isolated in the famous region of La Rioja in Spain. It has been selected by Instituto de Ciencias de la Vid y del Vino (Institute of Grapevine and Wine Sciences) (ICVV), during an extensive research program starting in 2006. After a screening of 1000 natural isolates coming from different wineries and a full characterization, SILKA™ gives unique sensory properties while responding to the demands of climate change in warm climates. Beside its good resistance to high alcohol content and regular MLF kinetic, SILKA™ is recognized for its positive impact on the roundness, softening the astringency and bitterness of red wines, and allows to achieve complex and very well balanced red wines, with a nice aromatic persistency. Due to its unique origin and sensory impact particularly on softening tannins, SILKA™ is also very well suited to conduct MLF in contact with oak. Compared to a spontaneous MLF, the wines inoculated with SILKA™have a better integrated oak sensation, with an elegant structure and present a highest aromatic freshness. After several months, the wines elaborated with SILKA™ are still fruity and fresh whereas the control wines have overripe aromas characteristics.
