SO.FRUITY is a S. cerevisiae, L1414 strain yeast, selected in Beaujolais by the IFV. This yeast has excellent fermentation action and is appropriate for short to medium duration wine-making. Wine expression is characterized by notes of small red berries. SO.FRUITY enables very good extraction of anthocyanins and tannins and thus produces colorful wines with a soft structure.
SO.FRUITY is particularly recommended for Gamay in Beaujolais Villages and in Crus along with making supple and fruity wines from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gamay, Pinot Noir amongst other vine varieties.
