Lalvin ICV D47 Wine Yeast (5 g)
Lalvin ICV D47 is a wine making yeast that is a low-foaming quick fermenter that settles well, forming a compact lees at the end of the wine making fermentation process. This strain is recommended for making wines from white varieties such as Chardonnay and Rosé.
The sensory profile of wines made with Lalvin ICV D47 demonstrate an enhanced aroma and flavour. It tends to allow the expression of good levels of terpenes, including citronellol, nerol and geraniol. Due to the release of polysaccharides into the must during fermentation , this yeast contributes to a round, soft palate with good weight. This process can also result in the stability of aromatic compounds. When left on lees spicy, tropical, citrus notes develop and the wine is said to have a silky persistence.
