NT 202 enhances red berry aromas in Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and blackberry, black currant, tobacco and prune aromas in Pinotage. It is recommended for the production of red wines with or without wood maturation. NT 202 has a high alcohol tolerance, good fructose utilisation and a stimulating effect on malolactic fermentation when compared to other red wine strains. It is therefore especially suitable for the vinification of high sugar musts where the resulting high alcohol at the end of fermentation can potentially cause sluggish or stuck alcoholic fermentations and/or problematic MLF’s.
