An excellent all-purpose wine yeast. It is a fast-starting, vigorous fermenting strain with high resistance to sulfur-dioxide. Montrachet has good flavor characteristics that are well suited to a wide variety of red and white wine types.
This strain guaranties a quick start of the fermentation by rapidly settling into the must faced with indigenous microflora. Good alcohol resistance (till 15% vol.) and specially recommended for fermentation without temperature control due to its ability to ferment within a large temperature range (15°C to 35°C, 59°F to 95°F). Optimum resistance to all nutritional deficiencies (musts poor in available nitrogen) and to difficult conditions (strongly clarified musts, high SO2 content).
