ZYMAFLORE® winemaking yeasts

YEASTS FOR THE ALCOHOLIC FERMENTATION OF WINES

NEW New product in this range

ZYMAFLORE® CX9

The result of several years of research and development, ZYMAFLORE® CX9 originates from a mass selection from a great Burgundy vineyard and has taken advantage of breeding technology to offer improved fermentation performance, low volatile acidity production and POF negative character. This strain contributes to bringing out lemony, almond, toasty notes and fresh hazelnut in Chardonnay wines. Wines resulting from these fermentations are fine and elegant with a subtle blend of smoothness, aroma, tautness and mouthfeel.

Description

Made especially for high-precision winemaking, the ZYMAFLORE® range features a selection of yeasts with their own individual, unique and remarkable qualities.  They work to enhance a wine’s aromas, improve perception of volume in the mouth, and offer technological advantages (reducing VA or SO2, etc.). Whether bred specifically or harvested locally, the selection criteria are extremely strict and properly identified markers are used in order to meet the demands of each specific market.
