Stimulates volatile thiol production in aromatic white and rosé wines
Stimula Sauvignon Blanc™ is added at the beginning of the fermentation (this equates to approximately 2–3 brix drop). This 100% autolyzed yeast product is particularly rich in calcium pantothenate, thiamin, vitamin B6 complexes, folic acid, manganese, and zinc in order to optimize the uptake of the 4-MMP and 3-MH precursors and their bioconversion into volatile thiols. Thiols can be found in Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, as well as Syrah, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon amongst others. These desirable compounds are recognized due to their tropical (passionfruit, guava) and citrus (grapefruit) flavors as well as blackcurrant and gooseberry. By using Stimula Sauvignon Blanc you are revealing the aromatic potential of your grapes.
