Description: ZYMAFLORE FX10® is the strain for red wines defined by their elegance, combining structure, mouthfeel and colour intensity. The direct breeding (GMO free crossbreeding) has improved its tolerance to high temperature, insuring fermentation security even in tough conditions.
Especially recommended for the production of premium wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
FERMENTATION CHARACTERISTICS: • Excellent ability to assimilate fructose • Alcohol tolerance: up to 16 % vol • Range of temperatures: 20 - 35° C • Low nitrogen requirements
ORGANOLEPTIC CHARACTERISTICS: • Good polysaccharide release (palate volume) • Retains polyphenolic potential (structure and colour) • Released polysaccharides combine with wine tannins, keep them silky even at high concentrations • Very suitable for ageing on lees. • Expresses "terroir" very low fermentation aroma production
This is my go to yeast for making Bordeaux Varietals across Napa Valley. It has moderate yeast cell growth so I can heat my tanks before the cell population doubles, which gives me great control over tannin extraction.
