Wine Yeast: Lalvin D-254
5 gram packet for 5 US gallons. Best for fermenting Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel, Sangiovese, and Chardonnay style wines.
When your wine must is aerated and the fermentation temperature is maintained below 82 degrees Fahrenheit, Lalvin D-254 can tolerate alcohol up to 16% ABV.
D254 also creates unique flavor profiles that depend on the style of wine you are making. In white wines, particularly Chardonnay, Lavin D254 imparts notes of butterscotch, hazelnut, and almond aromas. In red wines, it helps develop flavors of ripe fruit, jam, and cedar aromas with a pleasant, mild spiciness.
The Lalvin D-254 strain was isolated by ICV (Institut Coopératif du Vin) from Rhone Valley Syrah fermentations.
Just like all of our winemaking yeast, our Lalvin D254 is refrigerated on-site to maintain freshness and integrity. All of our packets of Lalvin wine yeast are in stock and ready to ship quickly so you can start fermenting your next batch of wine!
