SB3 Direct Inoculation MLF Bacteria


Oenococcus oeni strain for direct inoculation of red wines.

Thanks to the direct process, LACTOENOS® SB3 DIRECT can be inoculated directly into wines without rehydration.

Maloboost MLF Nutrient


Lactic acid bacteria activator facilitating the start of the malolactic fermentation (MLF) and accelerating the kinetic.

MALOBOOST® promotes the growth of lactic acid bacteria and allows for a faster MLF.
MALOBOOST® is mainly used:

– In wines lacking in nutrients (thermovinification, absence of lees, very low turbidity…).
– After a sluggish alcoholic fermentation.
– In case of difficult conditions: High ABV, low temperature, low acidity, late or “springtime” MLF…
– Suitable for all types of wine.
– MALOBOOST® is neutral from an organoleptic point of view.
