  1. Vintner's Harvest Yeast – BV7 – full bodied aromatic white wines (8g)
    $4.60

    Vintner's Harvest Yeast – BV7 – full bodied aromatic white wines (8g)

    Saccharomyces Cerevisiae – Ideal for full bodied, full flavoured dry and sweet white wines. BV7 will both preserve and enhance the grape variety and terroir, promoting excellent flavour complexity, good wine structure and balance but especially FULL AROMATIC FLAVOUR. To appreciate the impact of BV7, split a chardonnay must, fermenting half with CL23 and the remainder with BV7 – you will be amazed at the impact of the yeast strain upon fruit concentration. BV7 produces a wide range of low level beneficial congeners such as higher alcohols and esters and high glycerol promoting full body and structure to the wine and contributing significantly to mouth-feel, wine texture and palate intensity. Avoid fermenting above 13% abv. ethanol, BV7 is not particularly ethanol tolerant. Acceptable temperature range is 15 to 30°C (59 -86°F) but ferment below 22°C (72°F) for maximum flavour development.

  3. Di Ammonium Phosphate (DAP) 1kg
    $16.16

    Di Ammonium Phosphate (DAP) 1kg

    Di Ammonium Phosphate (DAP) is very effective in stimulating yeast growth by adding nitrogen to the must. This will also help with the prevention of hydrogen sulphide in finished wines.

  4. Vintner's Harvest Yeast – SN9 - All round wine strain (8g)
    $4.60

    Vintner's Harvest Yeast – SN9 - All round wine strain (8g)

    Saccharomyces Bayanus – Very good all round strain, best choice for high alcohol and fortified wines but also excellent for most country wines, sweet sparkling wines and ciders. If you only had one wine yeast strain, this would be the strain because whilst being relatively neutral in character SN9 does introduce excellent weight and structure no matter the must or fruit and produces a congener profile that always compliments the wine. SN9 is particularly good when fermenting flower or low fruit recipes which often lack vinosity, weight and depth. SN9 is another strain noted for its robustness, being able to ferment to 18% abv. ethanol, tolerate high free SO2 and high levels of other stress factors such as organic acids, incorrect temperature and pH. But unlike CL23, SN9 adds weight and high glycerol production making the strain perfect for high alcohol sweet wines or where uncertain recipes are employed and fermentation reliability is a key factor or where low temperature fermentation down to 10°C (50°F) is required. This strain is ‘fermentation friendly’ in that it produces zero foam, starts fermenting rapidly so avoids potential bacterial contamination and can be used to re-start stuck fermentations. SN9 is also the most osmotolerant and the fasting clearing of all Vintner’s Harvest strains. SN9 is ideal for restarting stuck fermentations.

  6. Vintner's Harvest Yeast – VR21 – red fruit country wines (8g)
    $4.60

    Vintner's Harvest Yeast – VR21 – red fruit country wines (8g)

    Saccharomyces Cerevisiae – Exceptional strain for full fruit varietal and country red wines promoting good structure, balance and colour. The majority of yeast strains strip out fruit flavour and colour from the must, not so with VR21 which is particularly noted for preserving and retaining the natural fruit characteristics of the grape / country fruit and enhancing palate length. VR21 is a relatively neutral strain producing subtle levels of aroma and flavour compounds, allowing full expression of varietal / country characteristics whilst enhancing colour, wine structure and balance. VR21 is an ethanol tolerant killer strain, capable of fermenting to 15% abv. ethanol. Good production of glycerol, low volatile acid production, zero sulphur dioxide formation and low foaming.

  9. Vintner's Harvest Yeast – R56 – full bodied red wines (8g)
    $4.60

    Vintner's Harvest Yeast – R56 – full bodied red wines (8g)

    Saccharomyces Cerevisiae – Ideally suited for rich, full bodied red wines with exceptional flavour complexity. Noted for exceptional depth and flavour complexity, R56 exhibits complex aromatics during fermentation conferring an old world quality which one might only expect from natural flora multiple strain fermentations. Unusually for complex aromatic strains, R56 still respects the varietal character of the fruit and confers good structure and balance. R56 is also a high glycerol producing strain. R56 is a medium rate fermenter with optimal temperature between 22 to 30°C (72 -86°F) which will ferment to 13.5% abv. ethanol.
