Description
Shiraz (Syrah), Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Sémillon, Chenin Blanc

  • Product of the yeast hybridization program of Infruitec-Nietvoorbij, the wine and vine institute of the Agricultural Research Council in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
  • It is alcohol tolerant up to 15.5% (v/v), cold tolerant (13°C/56°F) and has a medium nitrogen requirement.
  • NT 116 has a dual application in winemaking. Its fermentation kinetics make it very suitable for full-bodied, high-maturity red wines destined for oak aging.
  • Its high ability to convert volatile thiols and high ester production at low temperatures makes it similarly suitable for the production of New World style aromatic white and rosé wines. It specifically enhances the zesty (citrus) aromas in whites.
