The 71B-1122 yeast strain helps to produce rounder, smoother, and more aromatic wines that tend to mature quickly. Commonly used by professional winemakers for young wines such as vin nouveau and has been found to be very suitable for blush and residual sugar whites. The strain also has the ability to produce significant esters and higher alcohols, making it an excellent choice for fermenting concentrates. It is a rapid starter, and has the ability to metabolize high amounts (20-40%) of malic acid.
