New yeast for wine

This article was originally published in Foodnews

DANISH bio science company Chr Hansen has designed a frozen, direct inoculation Pichia kluyveri yeast product for white and rosé wine. Viniflora FrootZen is based on a yeast strain found naturally in grape juice but never commercially used in oenology until now. "Launched with great success in New Zealand in December the new product will be available in France as well as in the US on 1 June 2011, right on time for next vintage," Hansen said. The product is particularly suitable for white winemakers producing Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay or Riesling.
