Oenococcus oeni adapted to high SO2 and alcohol, enhances complexity and mouthfeel

LALVIN VP41™ is a flexible and adaptable strain that is appreciated for its ability to enhance aromatic complexity, richness, and mouthfeel in different styles of red, white, and rosé wines.

• White wines have elevated tropical fruit flavors, apple and pear notes, and very low levels of diacetyl
• Rosé wine aromas are respected and adaptable based on varietal and fermentation aromas
• Red wines have increased currant and berry flavors and aromas, with enhanced coffee and chocolate notes and sweet tannins
• Recommended strain for restarting stuck malolactic fermentations
• At temperatures below 16°C (61°F) it may be slow to start but can complete MLF
• Selected for its strong implantation rate, steady fermentation kinetics, high alcohol tolerance, enhanced mouthfeel, and ability to improve wine structure
