Viniflora CH16
This product has worked great for me I think more people Should use it particularly with high acid hybrids. Don't be scared off of trying MLF. I use Accuvin Malolactic Acid test to confirm Acid presents and depletion. Also, make sure conditions are right for MLF to start, proper PH and SO2..... I observe Acid conversion and a very significant Taste improvement in the wine.
