Pinnacle Tropica 500g

Used to increase tropical fruit aromas (guava, passion fruit, pineapple, and lychee) in white wines. Please call for availability.


Tropica should be used to increase tropical fruit aromas in white wines. It releases guava, passion fruit and pineapple aromas on the nose, with a distinctive guava/lychee character on the palate. It is recommended for use on grape varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Colombard.

Fermentation characteristics 

  • Strong fermenter at temperatures ranging between 14-18°C (57-68°F).
  • A fermentation aid is strongly recommended for low nutrient juices and/or fermenting below 14°C (57°F).
  • Alcohol tolerance can reach up to 14% v/v without a fermentation aid, although higher alcohols can be achieved with improved nutrition, particularly toward the end of fermentation.
  • There is some foam produced with this yeast, especially under stressful conditions at low temperatures; we don’t recommend fermenting below 13°C (55°F).

Nitrogen requirements

Standard nitrogen additions via DAP or ammonia will result in successful fermentations with this yeast; however a complex nutrient is recommended for cold fermentations <14°C (57°F) and/or low nutrient juices to ensure a successful fermentation.
