Product Details

Lalvin ICV D47™ yeast is highly valued for its ability to enhance the aromatic and flavor profile of wines, particularly those that undergo barrel fermentation. Its high polysaccharide production results in a round, soft palate with good weight, while its β-glucosidase activity enhances terpene levels, contributing to complex and stable aromas. Ideal for premium white wines, especially Chardonnay, as well as other grape varieties like Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Roussanne, Sauvignon Blanc, and Viognier. This yeast is also versatile enough for use in making mead and fruit ciders.
