Red Star Premier Rouge (formerly called Pasteur Red) is a strong, steady fermenting winemaking yeast that produces full-bodied red wines. This wine yeast encourages the development of varietal fruit flavors, balanced by complex aromas, especially when using grapes from the Cabernet family. This yeast is reported to give character to less robust red grapes, or those picked before optimum development. Red Star Premier Rouge, a strain of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae, has been derived from the collection of the Institute Pasteur in Paris. Non-GMO.
