Bordeaux Red Dry Wine Yeast

Bordeaux Red Dry Wine Yeast

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

A great dry yeast for making red wine, highly recommended for production of quality red wines!. Able to ferment between 64 and 86 degrees F and up to 16% alcohol. This is one of the yeasts that MoreWine uses in the production of the majority of our red wines. In our experience, BDX has continuously excelled not just with the Bordeaux varietals, but with Zinfandel and the Rhone varietals as well.

Wine Yeast
This was my first year using this wine yeast and so far the fermentation is over and I have done my second racking and the wine looks smells and tastes great.

Used this yeast for the first time. Ferment small batches in 80 gal SS fermenters. The fermentation is slower but max temp is 70 degrees. In the past would battle temps as high as 86 degrees in these small fermenters. Am very happy.

Used on Cellar Craft Mountain Red Cab
Really enjoyed the change this yeast made in my wine. Wine is only 18 months, yet can tell a distinct favor change. Have made this kit 6 times. This is my go to wine kit. As my skills improve so does the wine. This leaped the taste of the kit in my humble opinion.
Also used in a Cellar Craft Amarone, first attempt at this wine. Unable to give change review, however another excellent wine.
