The new yeast for high quality fruity red wines
Fermivin® P21 strain has been selected in Burgundy (France) by IFV Beaune (French Institute of the Vine and the Wine) on Pinot noir and Gamay grapes. As a good fermenter strain, Fermivin P21 ensures a complete fermentation.
Fermivin P21 releases a lot of ethyl esters (stable aromatic compounds) and gives the highest Total Polyphenol Index (TPI) among 6 different commercial yeasts. Also, the extremely high level of HCDC activity (100% !!), when combined with a high Cinnamyl Esterase (CE) enzyme can stabilize the colour and prevent the formation of ethyl phenol (EP) by Brettanomyces.
