Syrah is a Cote du Rhone isolate used for Syrah, Merlot and Carignane. It is a high glycerol producer and offers good mouthfeel and stable color extraction. It requires high nutrient levels and shows the best sensory results when rehydrated with GO-FERM. Typical aromas include violets, raspberries, cassis, strawberries, black pepper and grilled meat. This is a great all-around yeast, which can be used by itself or for it's mouthfeel and top-notes in a blend. Best results with fermentations between 59 and 86 degrees F, alcohol tolerant to 16%.
