Vintners Harvest AW4 Wine Yeast, 8 Grams
The ‘only strain’ for Germanic aromatic white wines. AW4 is noted for developing powerfully fragrant, full spice aromatic wines and is a perfect match for Gewurztraminer and also recommended for Sauvignon and Semillon where the Oenologist requires a positive aromatic esters contribution from the yeast.
AW4 is a good fermenter across the range 14 to 30C (57 -86F), low foam formation and medium to high glycerol. It will ferment up to 14.5% alcohol by volume, providing the temperature is held within the 20 - 25C (68 -77F) range and the pH is above 3.0.
