O. oeni adapted to high alcohol and known for enhancing mouthfeel

  • Enoferm Alpha™ was selected by the French Institut Technique du Vin (ITV) from a spontaneous fermentation. It shows good fermentation activity and provides a positive sensory contribution.
  • Known strain that has proven effective at alcohol levels up to 15.5% (v/v), temperatures down to 14°C(57°F) , pH above 3.2 and total SO2 up to 50 ppm.
  • Alpha is a dominant strain and shows good resistance to botrycides.
  • It is often described as enhancing mouthfeel and complexity while reducing perceptions of green and vegetative characters.

Storage:

All malolactic bacteria sold by Scott Laboratories requires an expedited shipping method packed with ice. Please refrigerate or freeze all cultures immediately after receipt to ensure optimal viability of the bacteria when used. It is possible that the ice may have melted and the product may have warmed during shipment. DO NOT BE ALARMED. These bacteria were produced according to a proprietary process that is different from competitive direct inoculation products. Thus, provided that any warming period is short term and moderate (e.g. 48 hours at 86°F/30°C), viability will be excellent.
