DESCRIPTION

A low foaming, vigorous and fast fermenter good for both reds and whites. It is also ideal for  dry ciders and sparkling wines. A very competitive yeast that will inhibit wild yeasts. Similar to the KV-1116, it will restart stuck fermentations because of good alcohol and sulfite tolerance. This is a very neutral yeast that will have very little effect on the varietal character of the grape. A popular strain that ferments fully and flocculates well producing compact lees. Good for cool fermentations. Champagne, dry reds, whites, dry ciders and sparkling wines.
