An excellent Lalvin® yeast for expression and retention of fresh fruit aromas in white wine, developed by Lallemand, a leading producer of yeasts.
Lalvin K1™ (V1116) has been selected by INRA Montpellier located in France in the Mediterranean region. When fermented at low temperatures (below 16°C) and with the right addition of nutrients, Lalvin K1™ (V1116) is one of the yeasts producing the most floral esters (isoamyl acetate, hexyl acetate, phenyl ethyl acetate). These esters bring fresh floral aromas to neutral varieties or high-yield grapes. Among the high ester producers, Lalvin K1™ (V1116) is the most resistant strain in difficult fermentation conditions, such as low turbidity, low temperature and low fatty acid content. Lalvin K1™ (V1116) is also a proven strain for the fermentation of ice wines.
