Stimulates positive thiol production in aromatic whites and rosés
Stimula Sauvignon Blanc™ is a 100% autolyzed yeast added at the beginning of fermentation, after approximately 2–3°Brix drop. It enhances volatile thiol production in Sauvignon blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Sémillon, as well as rosés made from Syrah, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon. Volatile thiols are responsible for the varietal aromas associated with tropical (passion fruit, guava), citrus (grapefruit), gooseberry, and blackcurrant flavors.
Stimula Sauvignon Blanc is particularly rich in calcium pantothenate, thiamin, vitamin B6 complexes, folic acid, manganese and zinc. These vitamins and minerals stimulate yeast uptake of odorless thiol precursors and their subsequent conversion into aromatic volatile thiols (4MMP and 3MH).
Mix Stimula Sauvignon blanc in 10 times its weight of clean, chlorine-free water or juice and add to the fermentation at 2–3°Brix drop. It is essential that the timing of addition is respected.
Stimula Sauvignon blanc is not fully soluble.
Stir to maintain suspension before and during addition.
