Lalvin K1-V1116
Lalvin K1-V1116
The Lalvin V1116® has been isolated in 1972 by Pierre Barre of the INRA Montpellier. This yeast tends to express freshness of white grape varieties. Natural fresh fruit aromas are retained for a longer time when compared with wines fermented with standard yeasts (such as Prise de Mousse). When fermented at low temperatures (below 16°C) and with the right addition of nutrients, Lalvin V1116® is one of the more flowery ester producers (isoamyl acetate, hexyl acetate, phenyl ethyl acetate). These esters bring fresh floral aromas to neutral varieties or high-yield grapes. Among the high ester producers, Lalvin V1116® is the most resistant to difficult fermentation conditions such as low turbidity, low temperature, and low fatty acid content. Lalvin V1116® is recommended for the fermentation of ice wines. It can also be used for rosé or basic red wines.
