Suitable for wines that have undergone cold soak
Vitilevure 3001™ is recommended for use with cold soak protocols to produce intense Pinot noir wines with aging potential.
Wines made with 3001 are noted for fruit and varietal characters that are both elegant and complex.
This strain was isolated, studied and selected from the prestigious Côte de Nuits terroir in Burgundy during a three year research project by Laboratory Burgundia Oenologie in Beaune, France. The goal of this selection program was to find a dominant yeast strain from a traditional cold soak that would enhance the varietal character, intensity, and balance of Pinot noir.
Tolerant of standard SO2 additions and low temperatures for a steady and reliable alcoholic fermentation following cold soak.
