Lalvin RC212

Highly recommended for Pinot Noir. Limited polyphenolic adsorption onto yeast cells results in colour and structure preservation. This yeast also supports red berry and spicy notes. The Bourgorouge RC212™ strain was selected from fermentations in the Burgundy region of France, by the Bureau Interprofessional des Vins de Bourogne (BIVB). It was selected for its ability to ferment a traditional heavier style Burgundian Pinot Noir. This yeast has placed itself as the ‘reference yeast for the making of quality Pinot Noir. Lalvin RC212™ enhances the polyphenolic content of grape types ‘reference yeast’ such as Grenache, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel. It consistently produces Pinot Noir with structure, ripe cherry, bright fruit and spicy characters.
