Enoferm Assmanshausen (AMH)™ is a German isolate from the culture collection of the Geiseneheim Research Institute, Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology.  The long lag time with low-medium fermentation rate, allos some expression of indigenous microflora.  If this is not desired, a good rehydration, inoculation and nutrient protocol is essential.  Enoferm AMH™ produces low levels of the enzymes responsible for color loss, hence, in combination with the slow fermentation rate, is deemed a color-friendly yeast.  Enoferm AMH™ tends to promote fruit and spiciness and is particularly suited for Pinot Noir and Zinfandel.
