MELODY™ is a blend of 3 yeasts, Kluyveromyces thermotolerans, Torulaspora delbrueckii for the wild touch and a Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain selected to take the lead during alcoholic fermentation and finish the consumption of sugars even in high-alcohol wine.
In white wines, MELODY™ gives tropical fruitiness and an overall aromatic intensity, combined with a round, balanced mouthfeel (Figure 1). MELODY™ can also be used for red wines, where fruity as well as spicy notes will be more pronounced (Figure 2).
MELODY™ is among the best products available on the market for managing fermentations in high-end wines: Chardonnay, Chenin and Sauvignon-Blanc, but also on red grapes varieties such as Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot, Tempranillo and Syrah.
The product is very often associated with the following malolactic cultures:
VINIFLORA® CINE™, when winemakers don’t want typical buttery, creamy flavors associated with malolactic fermentation
VINIFLORA® CH35, when winemakers seek these typical malolactic flavors.
