Uniformity in ripening, advancing and increasing phenolic maturity
LalVigne MATURE (patent pending technology) is a 100% natural wine yeast derivative (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). Applied at veraison, LalVigne MATURE foliar spray positively impacts the production of secondary metabolites in grapes, such as polyphenols.
The coloring of bunches is more uniform, grapes have thicker skins, combined with higher concentration of extractable anthocyanins and skin tannins, and consistently lower green flavor compounds such as methoxypyrazine. To produce better grapes and make higher quality red wines and more concentrated white wines.
Benefits, Characteristics & Application
Benefits for grapegrowers
Increases the thickness of berry skin: greater resistance of grapes with better physical properties.
Reduces dehydration: Less shrivel and dehydration resulting in higher yields.
Potential of earlier harvest date:
- In cool regions, it reduces the risks associated with late harvests (rainfall, frost).
- In warm regions, it tightens the gap between technological and phenolic maturity
Extends the harvest window: Earlier and higher accumulation of polyphenols.
Reduces weight loss in overripe conditions.
Better homogeneity of the grape color
Uniform veraison. Homogeneous maturation: Reduces variability, improves quality and allows for easier choice of harvest date.
Acts as complementary or alternative of other canopy management practices: Grapes will have better phenolic maturity and balance.
Natural input : 100 % specific fractions of selected wine yeast derivative Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Benefits for winemakers
Grapes with more homogeneous color.
Increases the synthesis of anthocyanins and their extractability during the winemaking process.
Higher ratio of skin compounds such as skin tannins with better maturity.
Improves phenolic maturity in grapes and wine.
Increases norisoprenoids concentration.
Improves the quality of red wines: Resulting wines have more balance, higher complexity and persistence and better mouthfeel.
More concentrated white wines: Increases the weight or fullness on the palate of white wines.
Less alcoholic and fresher wines: Possibility to advance harvest earlier and higher accumulation of phenolic compounds.
Reduction of herbaceous / aggressive character: Less pyrazines, better grape quality.
Reduced fermentation risks associated with under ripe /overripe grapes.
Optimizes total expenses by reducing the need for oenological supplies.

Application Timing & Instructions
Rate Per Application
LalVigne MATURE – 1 kg/ha
1st application at 5% veraison.
2nd application 7 – 14 days later (best 10-12 days)
Apply when cool, night or early morning
First application at the beginning of veraison (5% to 30%), make second application 10-12 days later.
If 30% veraison has passed before first application, make second application 7 days later.
1. Suspend LalVigne MATURE in approximately 10 times its weight of water in order to get a perfect dissolution.
2. Add preparation to half full sprayer and continue agitating.
3. Add remaining water, spray on leaves at 200 to 600 l/ha.
