Stimula Syrah



Fermentation Nutrient - YAN source that also stimulates the release of varietal aromas (floral & spicy) in reds.

STIMULA SYRAH™ is an organic nitrogen source that contributes YAN while stimulating the yeast’s ability to reveal and enhance varietal compounds in red wines.
  • Added at the onset of active fermentation, the specific formulation helps yeast take up aroma precursors (varietal thiols, terpenes, and norisoprenoids) and convert them into odor-active compounds
  • Wines have enhanced varietal aromas which can be displayed as increased black currant, floral (violet), or spicy aromas, and wines have fewer sulfur off odors like H2S
  • Well-balanced nutrient rich in amino acids and small peptides, vitamins (pantothenate and thiamin), minerals (magnesium), and sterols
  • Latest generation of yeast-based nutrients focusing on nutrition and aroma production

Recommended Dosage: 40g/hL – 3.3 lb/1000 gal
  • Measurable YAN at 40g/hL dose: 16ppm
  • YAN equivalents at 40g/hL dose: 64-96ppm
Usage: Mix STIMULA SYRAH in 10 times its weight of clean water or must and add to the fermentation
at 2-3 °Brix drop. It is essential that the timing of addition is respected. STIMULA SYRAH is not fully soluble. Stir to maintain suspension before and during addition.
Storage: Dated expiration. Store in a dry environment at 18°C (65°F). Once opened, use immediately.
