The IOC TwICE yeast has been chosen by the French Institut Français de la Vigne et du Vin of Beaune as the yeast best suited to the preparation of Chardonnay wines that are fresh, complex and balanced. The trials carried out revealed its suitability for highlighting fresh citrus aromas (especially lemon), peach, apricot and flowers.
Remarkably, IOC TwICE brings an incomparable amplitude and roundness on the attack and mid-palate, followed by a fresh finish for the perfect balance.
Particularly well adapted to fermentation in tanks, IOC TwICE has been used with success on numerous Chardonnay wine musts around the world as well as with other grape varieties (Viognier, Grenache, Sémillon, Gros Manseng, etc). Its moderate fermentation rate ensures its use too with medium sweet wines and dessert wines owing to its excellent suitability for fortified wines.
