New additions Maloferm Vintage and Maloferm Bouquet join the Maloferm range for quality sequential malolactic fermentation.
For the 2021 vintage, the Maloferm range will include two new products: Maloferm Vintage and Maloferm Bouquet. These two new cultures are Oenococcus oeni bacteria for sequential inoculation that display a short lag phase and good fermentation kinetics, whilst producing very little volatile acidity and no biogenic amines during malolactic fermentation (MLF).
About Maloferm Vintage :
Maloferm Vintage is an O. oeni strain that is versatile and robust and has been developed in order to secure a complete, reliable and quality-enhancing MLF in premium white, rosé and red wines. Whilst Maloferm Vintage is capable of enhancing the quality aspects of volume and mouthfeel (Figure 1), it also decreases green, herbaceous characters. All of this is achieved whilst respecting the varietal and vintage characters of the wine
About Maloferm Bouquet :
Maloferm Bouquet is an O. oeni strain developed to bring out fruity and floral characters in rosé and red wines during sequential MLF. It enhances the wine quality with intense notes of red, black tropical and citrus fruits (Figure 3), but also floral notes. The overall flavour is improved with increased volume, length and mouthfeel on the palate. The complete aromatic bouquet of the wine is improved and enhanced during the process of MLF (Figure 4).
About Maloferm portfolio :
The complete Maloferm portfolio consisting of Maloferm Plus, Fruity, Vintage and Bouquet enhances wine quality whilst ensuring complete and reliable malolactic fermentations. The Maloferm range is distributed by Oenobrands.
