Enhanced fresh fruit, spice, and tannin integration

LALVIN ELIOS 1™ is best suited for Mediterranean, Rhône style, and other warm climate red wines where it is known for enhancing red fruit aromas, spice, and tannin intensity.
  • Wines have an integrated mouthfeel with good mid-palate intensity, decreased drying sensations, and increased freshness
  • Can reduce the perception of green and vegetative characters
  • Selected due to its fast implantation and reliable malic acid degradation
  • Has a high capacity for acetaldehyde degradation. Because acetaldehyde strongly binds SO2, using ELIOS 1 may help keep more SO2 in the free form and therefore make post-MLF SO2 additions more effective
  • Oenococcus oeni isolated by the Institut Coopératif du Vin (ICV), France
