Oenococcus oeni adapted to high alcohol; enhances mouthfeel

ENOFERM ALPHA™ can efficiently conduct malolactic fermentation at cooler temperatures and positively contribute to wine aroma, complexity, and mouthfeel.

• White wines have increased levels of pear, apricot, and pineapple aromas
• Red wines have berry, cherry, and plum aromas with decreased green and vegetative characters
• Shows good resistance to fungicides
• Selected for its high survival rate, dominance during malolactic fermentation, and reliability; however, it is sensitive to high levels of lactic acid (>1.5 g/L) and should not be used when malic acid is >4 g/L if a complete MLF is desired
Oenococcus oeni isolated by the Institut Français de la Vigne et du Vin, Burgundy, France
