Default Yeast for Peach wine?

Im going to start a batch of peach wine. These will be freshly picked peaches from the trees behind my parents house. Looking for a semi sweet wine with an ABV around 12%. What would be a good yeast to use? Ive used Lalvin EC-1118 for most of my wines and this yeast has produced great wine so I may just stick to this yeast. Just wondering if theres a better yeast for the wine that Im planning on making this weekend. Thanks

Andy F.

I have considered using cote des blancs for a sweet peach wine. I am sure you would have better success with this yeast then EC-1118 because CDB is designed to leave more residual sugars then 1118. My recipe book also recommends this yeast for peach wine.

Also I am jealous about your peach trees, I have to buy all my fruit. Good luck!

Lalvin 1122 or d47 would work well.

Dittto! I'm using D47 for my white grape sparkling peach wine, but it dries it out more than I want. Will try cote des blancs. (thanks Honda 88, from Honda ST1300)
