Mangrove Jack VR21 Wine Yeast, 8 Grams


Exceptional strain for full fruit varietal and country red wines promoting good structure, balance and color. The majority of yeast strains strip out fruit flavor and color from the must, not so with VR21 which is particularly noted for preserving and retaining the natural fruit characteristics of the grape / country fruit and enhancing palate length.

VR21 is a relatively neutral strain producing subtle levels of aroma and flavor compounds, allowing full expression of varietal / country characteristics whilst enhancing color, wine structure and balance. VR21 is capable of fermenting to 15% alcohol by volume. It produces good production of glycerol, low volatile acid production, zero sulphur dioxide formation and is low foaming.
