There are a lot of options for you. I went based on my brew stores resident mead expert and pitched Red Star's "Pasteur Red" in my cherry vanilla melomel, it's still in the primary but is getting close to time for a hydrometer reading and racking. It had great activity.

Here is a link to a yeast chart that may be helpful to you:

Good Luck

Depends on what you want for an end product & what your recipe is. I the words of Jack Keller: "Choose your yeast like you would choose a tool."
