Lalvin ICV GRE™ Wine Yeast (500g)
ICV GRE ™ particularly benefits red wines where an up-front fruit character is desired. Also suited for rose and white table wines.
In reds, it contributes up-front fruit to easy-to-drink Rhône-style wines. ICV GRE™ is used with short skin contact regimes (3 to 5 days) to reduce vegetal and undesirable sulphur components in varieties like Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Syrah. In fruit-focused whites like Chenin blanc, Riesling and Viognier, ICV GRE™ results in stable fresh-fruit characteristics and delivers a big fore-mouth impact.
If the fruit maturity is less than optimum, ICV GRE™ is excellent for bringing overall balance to red, rosé and white wines.
