Chr. Hansen was the first company to investigate the promising field ‘non-Saccharomyces and S. cerevisiae’ mixed culture blends in winemaking. Chr. Hansen’s range of specialty yeasts brings a distinctive touch to wines, helping winemakers to differentiate their wine and add complexity.
For added convenience, Chr. Hansen offers their non-Saccharomyces yeast strains in a mixed cultures format. Viniflora® Harmony is a blend of three yeast stains, Saccharomyces cerevisiae (80%), Torulaspora delbrueckii (10%) and Lachancea thermotolerans (10%). Harmony is an excellent choice for white or red wines that demand subtle but multi-dimensional differences.
