Maurivin BP725 is a pure Active Dry Wine Yeast selected for its ability to enhance the varietal flavours and aromas of red wines
CONTRIBUTION TO WINE
BP 725 is noted for its ability to enhance the varietal flavour of red wines through increased colour extraction and minimal colour loss during fermentation. BP 725 can also contribute yeast aromatics, although subtle in nature, allowing the varietal fruit to make a strong contribution.
RATE OF FERMENTATION
BP 725 has a short lag phase and is a strong fermenter at warmer temperatures of 18–30°C (65–85°F). BP 725 displays a medium, steady rate of fermentation at cooler temperatures.
BP 725 is considered a moderate to high nitrogen consumer. When fermenting highly clarified juice (low solids) of high alcohol potential a nitrogen supplement (100mg DAP/L) or Mauriferm fermentation aid is recommended to ensure a healthy fermentation.
BP 725 is ideally suited for varietal red wine making. With its ability to enhance colour and possessing a high alcohol tolerance, BP 725 is often used for fruit driven red varietals such as Shiraz/Syrah, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Merlot.
