A starter culture for inducing malo-lactic fermentation of wines or cider, developed by Erbslöh, a leading producer of processing aids.
MaloStar® Fresh SK55 is a highly concentrated, freeze-dried starter culture for direct initiation of malolactic fermentation, preferably in white and rosé wines. The strain is also suitable for young, fruity red wines. It has been carefully selected from a rosé wine from a famous wine-growing area in the south of France. MaloStar® Fresh SK55 was developed with a high rate of growth and increased vitality in mind, to perform malic acid degradation even in unfavourable conditions (low pH value, low temperature, high alcohol content, customary SO2 values). The strain is extremely hardy, as its resistance is promoted during production through controlled stress induction.
