Become an Alchemist


Alchemy I and II yeasts blends were the first products on the market to combine two yeasts in the one pack. The strains were specifically chosen after extensive research to enhance the wine aroma based on the metabolic interaction between specific yeast strains present in the blend. Alchemy I and II are now widely used in new world white wines.

Now with the introduction of Alchemy III and IV for red wines, a complete range of yeast blends is available.

This vintage, why don’t you see for yourself how they enhance the volatile aroma compounds of your wines. Our winemaker clients who trialled Alchemy III and IV last vintage were extremely pleased with the results and have already started to reorder for Vintage 2018.
