SafŒno™ HD S135 - Active Dry Yeast

FOR FULL BODIED AND SMOOTH REDS. SafOeno HD S135 is coming from the hybridization of two Lesaffre strains with the aim to combine their best characteristics towards polyphenols coating and resistance to difficult fermentation conditions for fruit driven middle ageing reds. For still White & Red wines. Dosage: 20 g/hl ROUND PREMIUM REDS SafOeno HD S135 is recommended for red wines whose power is associated with a smooth profile. This strain extracts indeed very well wine polyphenols but has the ability to deliver a round and well balanced structure. This feature can also be enhanced due to its low malic acid consumption. This favors wine processing between alcoholic and malolactic fermentation like micro-oxygenation. AROMA ENHANCER SafOeno HD S135 promotes the production of fruit driven reds, rather oriented on ripe red/black fruits. It is particularly adapted to varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, Tempranillo, Sangiovese and Grenache
