SC 22 is a dry yeast. It was the very first strain to be selected for a wine application for its respect of the varietal character of cultivars and for its regular and complete fermentation kinetic. It is an excellent fermenter. SC 22 is the strain of choice of the Bordelais region estates and as such is particularly adapted to cultivars like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It allows a rapid fermentation start and an excellent fermentation, regularity producing fine, neat wines with terroir characteristics. SC 22 is ideal for barrel fermentations. Even without controlling temperatures, the strain ferments regularly and its temperature rarely goes above 30°C, thus making stuck fermentation risks very low. Additionally it allows a very good expression of aromas linked to barrel ageing. SC 22 is a neutral strain allowing the production of wines with a great finesse while respecting the character of varieties. It is also adapted to the fermentation of white aromatic cultivars at low temperature with a long ageing on lees (Chenin Blanc, Viognier).
