Red Star Cotes Des Blancs
Red Star- Cote Des Blanc (Davis 750), a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, has been derived from a selection of the Geisenheim Institute in Germany. It is a relatively slow fermenter, identical to Geisenheim Epernay, but producing less foam. This yeast requires nutrient addition for most chardonnay fermentations. Cte des Blancs produces fine, fruity aromas and may be controlled by lowering temperature to finish with some residual sugar. It is recommended for reds, whites, sparkling cuves and non-grape fruit wines (especially apple, it is reported).
Ferments best between 17-30C (64-86F). Sensitive below 13C (55F).
