The Wyeast 4114 Er1a Malolactic wine yeast comes from the species Oenococcus oeni. It is actually a liquid suspension of Oenococcus oeni grown in a sterile organic juice based nutrient enriched medium. It will provide a rapid and complete malic acid reduction in high acid wines.

The malic acid reduction will balance and soften wine while still enhancing flavor and aroma, particularly the characteristics of vanilla and buttery notes.

Malolactic conversion is generally completed within 1-3 months.

Er1a Malolactic is an excellent choice for red wines and was isolated specifically for its tolerance to low pH conditions.
