Alcohol tolerance and fermentation performance are key attributes

Vineyard isolate from Côtes du Rhône. In red varietals, Rhône 2226 enhances varietal flavour and aroma, contributes to structure, and maintains high colour intensity. Can also be used for certain white varieties (eg Semillon) from warmer regions. Also useful for restarting stuck fermentations, A vigorous fermenter, tolerates 18% v/v alcohol. Given its tolerance to high alcohol, this yeast is recommended for the fermentation of high sugar must. It contributes to wine quality by enhancing varietal aroma expression and tannin structure and maintaining a high colour intensity.
