FOR OPTIMAL MANAGEMENT OF MALOLACTIC FERMENTATION (MLF) USING CO-INOCULAITON, DIRECT INOCULATION AND BUILD-UP CULTURES

NEW New product in this range

LACTOENOS® B7 DIRECT

In the aim of providing winemakers with a solution adapted to their needs for an effecient and simple product to use for the MLF management, and after 4 trial campaigns in the Southern and the Northern hemisphere, LAFFORT® launches LACTOENOS® B7 DIRECT. With this bacterium, LAFFORT® presents to winemakers a tool combining a high malolactic performance in red, white and rosé wines with pH ≥ 3,2 and an easy to use product; LACTOENOS® B7 DIRECT can be directly inoculated into the wine.

Description

A crucial step in the winemaking process, malolactic fermentation has a huge influence on the analytics and flavour characteristics of a wine. By seeding the wine’s microbial ecosystem with a selected, active, and controlled microorganism, you help prevent the development of undesirable yeast and bacteria at the end of the alcoholic fermentation process. You additionally prevent any flavour or hygiene defects (volatile acidity, volatile phenols, biogenic amines, etc.). Handled correctly, MLF can also be used to reduce the need for SO2 in the wine.

Thanks to our research into malolactic fermentation, LAFFORT® has selected a variety of bacterial strains for their effects and benefits in winemaking. The LACTOENOS® range combines these strains with specific production and inoculation processes, allowing professionals to control their MLF as accurately as possible.

If you’re having trouble with your malolactic fermentation, download our MLF restart protocol.

If your wine is low in L-malic acid (1 g/L), we will recommend a specific protocol  to help you manage your MLF as effectively as possible.

All of these documents are available in our LAFFORT & YOU space.
