Restarting malolactic fermentation (MLF)
The key steps to take to restart your MLF effectively.
Difficulties in carrying out MLF in wine can have various origins:
- Competition with residual yeasts.
- Toxicity of the wine, presence of inhibiting compounds (ethanol, SO2, medium-chain fatty acids, pH).
- Deficiency of the bacterial flora.
- Lack of nutrients needed by the bacteria.
In our protocol, find appropriate answers to each of these situations and the key steps to take to restart your MLF effectively.
