Renaissance Yeast Viva fruit wine yeast for h2s preventing by Gusmer winemaking


Viva is a H2S-preventing white wine yeast strain ideal for artisan-style sparkling wines, fruit forward grape wines and fruit wines. A rapid, clean fermenter characterized by its ability to work under diverse conditions, this yeast demonstrates strong fermentation kinetics, all the while preserving fresh, fruit character. Renaissance Yeast’s strains have excellent fermentation kinetics, desirable sensory characteristics, and are produced to the highest quality standards. Renaissance Yeast is the exclusive developer of a novel, patented H2S-preventing technology that is the result of a natural trait in yeast that increases sulfur and nitrogen utilization efficiency during fermentation, thereby preventing hydrogen sulfide formation.
