Maurivin Zevii is a pure Active Dry Hybrid Wine Yeast selected for its ability to increase aroma and palate complexity.
RATE OF FERMENTATION
AWRI Zevii displays a short lag phase and is a rapid fermenter at temperatures of 18-30°C (64-86°F). This hybrid yeast is a moderate fermenter at cooler temperatures of 15°C (59°F).
CONTRIBUTION TO WINE
AWRI Zevii has the capacity to significantly enhance the complexity of the wine whilst maintaining strong varietal characters. This hybrid imparts a richness to the palate, with increased fruit flavours, complexity and texture. Enhanced varietal fruit aromatics in white wine include apricot, peach and pear. In red wines, the aromatics are less subtle, allowing the varietal aromas to come through.
AWRI Zevii is recommended for increasing the complexity and fruit concentration of wines. The aromatics produced from this hybrid are particularly suited to white grape varieties such as Pinot Gris/Grigio, Viognier and Verdelho. AWRI Zevii is very popular for increasing the palate weight and mouthfeel of red grape varieties, such as Cabernet, Shiraz/Syrah, Malbec and Merlot.
