Pinnacle Cryo 500g

Used for cold fermentations in white grape varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Semillon and Chardonnay. Please call for availability.

Applications

Cryo should be used for cold fermentations (10-13°C, 50-55°F) in white grape varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Semillon and Chardonnay. It can be used in tank or barrel fermentations as it produces a low level of foam during fermentation. The result is a varietal white wine with enhanced fruit expression as the aromas are trapped under cold fermentation conditions.

Fermentation characteristics 

  • A strong fermenter at cooler temperatures ranging between 10-13°C (50-55°F), but can reach above 20°C (68°F) if required.
  • Alcohol tolerance is up to 14.5% v/v.
  • Only low levels of foam are produced with this yeast strain, even at low temperatures.
  • A fermentation aid is strongly recommended for low nutrient juices with this yeast.

Nitrogen requirements

Standard nitrogen additions via DAP or ammonia will result in successful fermentations with this yeast; however, a complex nutrient is recommended for low nutrient juices to ensure a successful fermentation.
