Varietal Enhancing Yeasts in RQ 2022 Kits

Crafting flavourful wine requires the highest quality must. In addition, using the right yeast is essential to enhance the wine’s complexity. During fermentation, yeast produce small amounts of volatile compounds that contribute characteristics to a wine’s aromas and flavours. Some of the most important flavour compounds are called esters, aldehydes and ketones. Advances in the understanding how yeast control the formation of these aroma compounds has lead to the development of yeast strains which can alter or emphasize various aromatic notes in the wine.

Bourgovin RC 212

This yeast was specifically developed in Burgundy, France for red wine fermentations to enhance varietal character by emphasizing ripe berry and fruit aromas. It also promotes good colour stability and extraction.

QA23

This yeast Originating from the VinhosVerde region of Portugal, the QA23 was selected for enhancing the flavors and aromas of grapes utilized in the production of premium white wines. Recommended for styles such as, Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Chenin Blanc, Colombardand Semillon, the QA23 produces fresh, fruity and clean wines.

Oak

French Oak
Wine is aged together with wood to enhance the flavour, aroma and complexity of the wine through the extraction of substances from the wood into the wine. When compared to American oak, French oak imparts subtler flavours and firmer, but silkier tannins which is ideal for lighter wines. French oak contributes flavours such as cigar box, cinnamon, and coffee.

American Oak
American oak is used by many winemakers for the aromatic sweetness it contributes to the wine. On the palate, American oak provides a tannin structure that accentuates the fruit on the mid palate, while on the nose it will contribute aromas of cedar, sweet spices, mocha, and coconut.
