O. oeni adapted to high SO₂ and high alcohol; enhances complexity and mouthfeel

  • Lalvin MBR VP41™ was isolated in Italy during an extensive European Union collaboration.
  • Chosen for its strong implantation, steady fermentation, and enhanced mouthfeel and wine structure.
  • Known strain that has proven effective at high alcohol levels (up to 15.5% v/v), pH above 3.2, and a total SO2 level of 50-60 ppm. In temperatures below 16ºC (61ºF) it is a slow starter but can complete fermentation.
  • Both red and white wines fermented with VP41 have increased richness and complexity. 

  • The 1-Step® VP41 (same strain as Lalvin MBR VP41) starter kit combines a highly effective malolactic starter culture with an activator to induce malolactic fermentation in an 18-24 hour build-up procedure.

Recommended for use with: Red, White. Also good for cider.
