YEAST DERIVATIVES

For organic fining and harmonisation of wines

RePrise BIO NOVEL INACTIVE YEAST

“Maturation and refreshment for all wines”

Yeast is a natural bioreactor which is not only responsible for alcoholic fermentation in winemaking. In addition, the yeast produces a number of natural, valuable ingredients during fermentation, which offer a variety of additional functions during wine maturation.

RePrise BIO is a new inactive yeast specifically designed for wine maturation after alcoholic fermentation and for the treatment of aged wines. It is produced exclusively on the basis of natural raw materials from certified organic agriculture, and contains no known allergens. Besides the complete inactivation of the yeasts by a vacuum process, the functional ingredients are protected by this gentle process. In particular, these are the polysaccharides and polypeptides of the yeast cell. They are the functional groups that serve as antioxidants, harmonisation of phenols, colour stabilisation of red wines or refreshment of old wines. They have reducing, adsorbing as well as complementary properties when applied in the wines. In addition, due to its natural production, RePrise BIO does not add its own yeasty taste to the wine.

With the entry into force of Regulation (EU) 2019/934 supplementing Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 with regard to authorised oenological practices and restrictions on the production and conservation of wine products, the following amendment, inter alia, opens up further areas of use for the winemaker:

Target Results from the practice

ClearUp BIO ORGANIC YEAST CELL WALLS

“The Problem Solver”

ClearUp BIO is a novel, highly purified organic yeast cell wall preparation. Due to its significantly higher content of lipids it has multiple properties which are desirable for modern winemaking. Among those is the superior removal of negative phenolics, replacing PVPP, casein and silica based fining aids; the absorption and removal of negative sensory characters from diseased fruit, stressed ferments and spoilage organisms; and helping prevent stuck or sluggish fermentations… and much more! Vegan friendly. Certified organic.

Ingredients

ClearUp BIO is a purified yeast cell wall preparation and compliant with the organic regulation EC 834/2007 and 889/2008.

All components are GMO-free and compliant with food grade standards.

Practical Application

ClearUp BIO can be applied to all musts and young wines. It can also be applied in fermentation of sugar or fruit juice concentrates. For all applications it is important to ensure that ClearUp BIO is well suspended and well distributed in the young wine.

Instructions for Use

  • Suspend the recommended dose of ClearUp BIO completely in wine/juice.
  • Use 10L of wine/juice per 1kg of ClearUp BIO.
  • When added in wine/juice, make sure the suspension is well mixed into the tank, e.g. by pumping.
  • The contact time should be minimum 2 hours to maximum 48 hours to allow sufficient reaction time.
  • Remove ClearUp BIO by filtration or racking after sedimentation.
  • Refer to Application Advice for more detailed application depending on use.

Dosage

Application Dosage
For fining of juice and wine 10-40g/hL
Sluggish or stuck fermentations 20-40g/hL
To absorb off-flavours and odour defects 10-40g/hL
For highly clarified juice 10-20g/hL
Other applications To be defined after own tests

Trial Example: Low NTU Juice

ClearUp BIO can be used to increase the inner surface in heavily pre-clarified musts, which will result in better yeast dynamics and higher final fermentation gravity in sugar-rich juices. The graph shows the effect on the yeast dynamics in a white Burgundy from 2011. With ClearUp BIO the NTU value is increased to 65 NTU. It is evident that the fermentation process is more reliable and healthier compared to the control.
