MicroEssentials Oenos Malo-lactic Nutrient, powder.

MicroEssentials Oenos Malo-lactic Nutrient is a complex nutrient formulated for growth and survival of malolactic bacteria.In most cases, it will provide a 20 - 40% faster malolactic fermentation.

It is recommended for use in white wines and red wines that present challenging conditions, highly clarifi ed wines or varietal wines that are notoriously difficult to put through malolactic fermentation - like Merlot and Zinfandel.

Nutrients are strongly recommended if your wine has any of the following characteristics:

  • High alcohol
  • High SO2
  • Low pH
  • Temperature extremes (too high or too low)

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

MicroEssentials Oenos is a complex nutrient formulated for growth and survival of malolactic bacteria. Unlike yeast, bacteria cannot store, nor synthesize all essential amino acids, so complex nutrients are necessary for supplementation. Newly fermented wine can often be deficient or void of nutrients due to yeast utilization, especially Saccharomyces bayanus, which can be slow to lyse after fermentation.

Nutritional depletion can cause sluggish or even stall malolactic fermentations. Due to the complex nutritional requirements of malolactic bacteria and the relatively harsh medium for growth, minimizing nutritional stress is important. In addition to amino acids and peptides, which are the most infl uential nitrogen sources required for malolactic growth, B-complex vitamins and trace minerals are especially important. MicroEssentials Oenos was developed specifically for Oenococcus oeni.

It contains a diverse blend of organic protein sources (no inorganic nitrogen sources, since bacteria cannot utilize it), vitamins and trace minerals.

In most cases, MicroEssentials Oenos will provide a 20 - 40% faster malolactic fermentation.
