LALVIN ICV OKAY® WINS A ‘PALMARÈS DE L’INNOVATION’ CITATION AWARD FROM SITEVI 2013
The new wine yeast, Lalvin ICV OKAY®, received a Citation Award in the category of Innovation from SITEVI 2013.
Lalvin ICV OKAY ® is the result of a collaborative study between the scientific INSTITUT COOPERATIF DU VIN ICV Group, Lallemand, SupAgro and INRA Montpellier. The innovation is based on successive backcrosses between an excellent fermenting kwine yeast and a yeast with very low production of sulfur compounds such as H2S.
The resulting Lalvin ICV OKAY ® yeast combines reliable fermentation performance and very low production of SO2, H2S and acetaldehyde. Lalvin ICV OKAY ® is recommended for aromatic white and rosé wines, ensuring low levels of volatile acidity, promoting aromatic esters and bringing freshness and balance in the mouth.
It ensures the success of alcohol fermentations even in the most difficult conditions.
An excellent all purpose yeast for all home winemaking, mead and fruit wines and concentrates.
