Elios 1 (ICV)

25 hL (660 gal) dose
250 hL (6,600 gal) dose

Lalvin MBR ICV Elios 1® was isolated by the Institut Coopératif du Vin (ICV) from a spontaneous malolactic fermentation for use in warm region red wines with high alcohol (15.5% v/v) and high pH.

Performs well when pH is above 3.4, temperatures are 18-25°C(6477°F) and total SO2 levels are <50 ppm.

This strain was evaluated against other Oenococcus oeni strains and was found to have a superior sensory profile.

Contributes to the mouthfeel of the finished wine by enhancing the perception of overall tannin mouthfeel intensity while avoiding green and vegetative characters.
