Pitching/Fermentation : Vintner's Harvest Yeast - R56 Ideally suited for rich, full bodied red wines. Noted for exceptional depth and flavor complexity, R56 exhibits complex aromatics during fermentation, conferring an old world quality which one might only expect from multiple-strain natural flora fermentations. Unusual in complex aromatic strains, R56 still respects the varietal character of the fruit and imparts good structure and balance.
Notes : R56 is also a high glycerol producing strain. A medium rate fermenter with optimal temperature between 22 to 30C (72 -86F) and will ferment to 13.5% abv.
Best Styles : Cabernet, Shiraz, Zinfandel
