Malolactic Bacteria, VP41
- Performs well at a pH above 3.2 and a total SO2¬†level of 50-60 ppm. In temperatures below 16¬∫C(61¬∫F) it is a slow starter but can complete fermentation.
- Chosen for its strong implantation, steady fermenta¬≠tion, high alcohol tolerance (up to 15.5% v/v), en¬≠hanced mouthfeel and wine structure.
- Both red and white wines fermented with VP41 have increased richness and complexity.
