I have peaches freezing to break up, I am planning on pitching Cote de Blanc.

Unless this thread turns up something highly recommended.

What about Montrachet? I was just reading through the thread where you had rhino farts, you mentioned it leaves a tad sweeter wine. I have never used Cote de Blanc, but reading; I thought that it would be perfect for peach, but Montrachet seems like a good runner up, no?

got this from midwestsupplies

"Cote des Blancs is also known as Epernay II. It is recommended for Chardonnay, Riesling, mead and cider, as well as fruit wines, particularly apple. it imparts a fruity aroma in both red and white wines. A slow fermenter that works best between 50 and 80 degrees. This strain will not ferment to a dryness at the low end of the range, leaving residual sugar resulting in a sweeter wine."



Sounds like a winner to me!!!

I suppose you could use montrachet, I just wish there was someone out in cyberspace that has already done it so we aren't just shooting in the dark.

It does sound like a winner to me too!

I typically refer to the yeast chart on Winemakers Depot - http://www.winemakersdepot.com/Yeast-Wine-Reference-Chart-W27.aspx

After a bit more googlon' around, it seems that a fair amount of others agree. D47 is also as popular.

It looks like the most logical one to me.

I used Lalvin K1V-1116 for the peach wine I made last year and it turned out very well.

I would not use Montrachet with peach wines because peach wines already are prone to rhino farts and Montrachet will just exacerbate the situation. I have used lalvin 71b and lalvin 1116 in peach wines and they make nice dry wines. If you want a sweeter wine the I would try cote de blanc.

I used CdB in a peach mango wine and a peach mango mead. It was more peach than mango and both turned out just great.
