THE original starter yeast.

SafŒno™ SC 22 was the very first strain to be selected for a wine application for its respect of the varietal character of cultivars and for its regular & complete fermentation kinetic. It is an excellent fermenter.

Still wines. Dosage: 20 g/hl
Fermentation restart. Dosage: 30 to 40 g/hl

Premium red wines

SafŒno™ SC 22 is the strain of choice of the Bordelais region estates and as such is particularly adapted to cultivars like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It allows a rapid fermentation start and an excellent fermentation regularity producing fine, neat wines with terroir characteristics.

Barrel fermentation or Ageing

SafŒno™ SC 22 is ideal for barrel fermentations. Even without controlling temperatures, the strain ferments regularly and its temperature rarely goes above 30°C, thus making stuck fermentation risks very low. Additionally it allows a very good expression of aromas linked to barrel ageing.

White & Rosé wines

SafŒno™ SC 22 is a neutral strain allowing the production of wines with a great finesse while respecting the character of varieties. It is also adapted to the fermentation of white aromatic cultivars at low temperature with a long ageing on lees (Chenin Blanc, Viognier).

Usage

Lesaffre know-how and continuous yeast production process improvement lead to obtain an exceptional quality of dry yeasts able to resist to a very wide range of use, cold or no rehydration included, without affecting their viability, kinetic and/or analytical profile.

Winemakers can choose usage conditions that fit the best their needs, i.e.:

 

① Direct inoculation:
Pour the yeast on the surface oeasy to usef at least 10 times their weight of must (possibly directly on the top of the tank or during tank filling after settling for whites and rosés). Gently stir to avoid or break clumps. Immediately transfer into the tank via a pumping over with aeration (or homogenize tank volume).

 

② With prior rehydration:
Pour the yeast on the surface of 10 times their weight of tap water at room temperature. Gently stir to avoid or break clumps. Wait for 20 minutes and transfer into the tank via a pumping over with aeration.

Packaging

Carton of 20 vacuum-packed sachets of 500g each (Full box net weight: 10 kg).
