This strain is able to improve the softness and the roundness of full bodied wines thanks to the valorisation of the lightest tannins. Varietal strain adapted to the vinification of Bordeaux grapes: development of “cut herbs” like aromas with Cabernet Sauvignon and “ripen fruits” like aromas with Merlot. Adapted to international market requirements by producing full bodied red wines poor in astringency. Production of complex aromas which combine with oak flavors to create a very original organoleptic profile, what can bring character to the lightest wines. Temperature range: 64-86 F. Alcohol Tolerance: 14%. 5 gram packet good for 5 gallons.
