Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé
S. cerevisiae • cerevisiae
The most recent natural yeast selection from the ICV.
Shown to have a short lag phase and medium nitrogen requirements.
Lalvin ICV Opale® shows good fermentation abilities from high-maturity grapes which might otherwise produce more neutral wines.
Optimizes positive aromas in difficult hot climate whites while providing intense fruit in premium white and rosé wines.
Can produce significant amounts of SO2 and, as a result, may inhibit malolactic fermentation.
Also good for cider.
