Robust and versatile strain for aroma complexity and mouthfeel enhancement

ENOFERM ALPHA™ can efficiently conduct malolactic fermentation at cooler temperatures and positively contribute to wine aroma, complexity, and mouthfeel.
  • White wines have increased levels of pear, apricot, and pineapple aromas. Red wines have berry, cherry, and plum aromas with decreased green and vegetative characters.
  • Shows good resistance to fungicides.
  • Selected for its high survival rate, dominance during malolactic fermentation, and reliability; however, it is sensitive to high levels of lactic acid (>1.5 g/L) and should not be used when malic acid is >4 g/L if a complete MLF is desired.
  • Oenococcus oeni isolated by the Institut Français de la Vigne et du Vin, Burgundy, France
