This product is a pure strain of Kluyveromyces thermotolerans to be used in combination with your Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain (or strains) of choice.


Chr. Hansen’s pure Kluyveromyces thermotolerans strain CH Kt 421 ensures a safe and reliable start of the alcoholic fermentation in both white, rosé or red wines. It gives a softer palate, rounder mouth-feel, increases wine aromas spectrum and longevity.


However, Kluyveromyces thermotolerans will not persist until the end of the alcoholic fermentation. Therefore, CONCERTO™ has to be inoculated with or before a Saccharomyces cerevisiae that will achieve a safe, smooth and fast alcoholic fermentation in wines.


This non-Saccharomyces strain has been especially selected for its enhancement of complexity and mouth-feel in wine. Grape musts inoculated with CONCERTO™ produce wines that have been noted to have a more complex character getting consumers preference, compared to fermentations with pure Saccharomyces yeast products. Chr. Hansen recommends the use of MERIT -a pure Saccharomyces cerevisiae strainwith CONCERTO™. However, winemakers can safely use any type of Saccharomyces cerevisiae in combination with CONCERTO™.


SO2 and H2S production by CONCERTO™ are low, and compatibility with malolactic cultures is good. To achieve fast and safe malolactic fermentations, always use a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae producing low levels of SO2.
