VINIFLORA® OENOS™ was launched in 1993, and was the first Oenococcus oeni for direct inoculation in wine.
The idea was to make malolactic fermentation safe, easy and convenient in a broad range of wines. Therefore, VINIFLORA® OENOS™ is a malolactic bacterium with a broad application, and it is still one of the most favored malolactic bacteria for malolactic fermentation in wine worldwide. We tend to see a special loyalty towards VINIFLORA® OENOS™ on the market, which we choose to see a sign of satisfaction and high quality.
VINIFLORA® OENOS™ will give you a stable and efficient malolactic fermentation in most wines (Figure 1, Figure 2).
VINIFLORA® OENOS™ produces a medium amount of diacetyl.
VINIFLORA® OENOS™ well with most grape varieties, but is mainly used in Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah (Shiraz), Merlot, Malbec, Pinot noir, Gamay, Nebbiolo, Carignan and Tempranillo.
VINIFLORA® OENOS™ can be used for early co-inoculation, late co-inoculation as well as sequential inoculation (Figure 1 and 3).
