For the fermentation of wine and the production of brandy
SafSpirit™CO-16 is recommended for the fermentation of wine for the production of Brandy, bringing both intensity and aromatic complexity. This strain is characterized by the production of acetate esters (isoamyl acetate, phenyl ethyl acetate, etc.) and of phenyl-ethanol in wines, producing brandy with intense fruity and floral aromas. The fermentative abilities of SafSpirit™ CO-16 to produce fatty acid ethyl esters makes it an ideal choice for distillation on lees in which it brings roundness and complexity.
