Yeast Recommendations

Below please find some notes associated with our recommended yeast strains for use with this fruit. It is important to note that any yeast will in fact perform the fermentation, however these strains have consistently performed well and produced flavors that our customers have been very happy with. To that end, the "correct" yeast strain is simply the one that sounds to you as though it will make the flavors that you are looking for in your wine.

You can add the yeast strain of your choice from the "You Might Also Need" section below. We also strongly recommend the use of the additive pack that you will see listed in this section as it will help enhance the quality of the wine you produce. Order one packet of yeast and one additive pack per pail of must or juice.
 

BM45 - One of the best all-around choices for Sangiovese. With big mouthfeel, plum, fruit jam, rose, and cherry liquor, along with earthy and spicy notes. Good colour stability and helps to minimize vegetative characters.
 
BDX - Good all-around choice for berry and jam. Will also bring out some of the leather and spice elements if they are in the fruit. Moderate rate fermenter with good color retention. Useful for developing structure in the wine by re-enforcing existing tannins- both good and bad, so don’t use with un-ripe fruit.
 
ICV-D21 - Fresh berry fruit along with big mouthfeel and positive tannic structure. Maintains good acidity and inhibits herbaceous characters from developing. Useful for hot climate fruit (high pH) and in blends for maintaining a lively freshness.
