Yeast Melody

MELODY™

The best of two worlds in one blend: wild fermentation effect through selected, high-quality yeast strains!

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.
