This strain tolerates fermentation temperatures ranging from 15° to 20°C (59° to 68°F) and enhances mouthfeel due to complex carbohydrates. Malolactic fermentation proceeds well in wine made with ICV D-47. Recommended for making wines from white varieties such as Chardonnay and rose© wines. An excellent choice for producing mead, however be sure to supplement with yeast nutrients, especially usable nitrogen. A great choice for dry whites, blush wines and residual sugar wines.
