Maurivin EP2 is a pure Active Dry Wine Yeast selected for its aromatic characters.
CONTRIBUTION TO WINE
EP2 is an ester–producing yeast, typically floral (rose) and perfume like in aroma. These aromatics are subtle in nature, which allows the varietal fruit to make a strong contribution.
RATE OF FERMENTATION
Fermenting within an optimum temperature range of 18–25˚C (65-77˚F), EP2 has a short to medium lag phase and a medium rate of fermentation. EP2 is susceptible to cooler temperatures, and thus making a fermentation temperature of 18˚C (65˚F) and above is recommended when fermenting to dryness.
EP2 is considered a low to moderate 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.
EP2 is recommended for ‘fruity, sweet’ wine styles containing a higher level of residual sugar. EP2 is susceptible to cooler temperatures (<15˚C; 59˚F) making this yeast easy to arrest during fermentation. With its floral aromatics EP2 is a popular yeast for Rosé, White Zinfandel and similar fruity wine styles.
