Rate of fermentation

A moderate to rapid fermenter at warmer temperatures 20-30 °C with a relatively short lag phase. For high maturity white grape juice of low solids, AWRI 796 may require careful management and temperature acclimatisation to ferment at lower temperatures (below 15-18 °C) and to successfully ferment to a high potential alcohol. Under these conditions it's advisable to allow the temperature towards the end of fermentations to rise above 15 °C.

Alcohol tolerance

AWRI 796 displays good alcohol tolerance in the range of 14.5–15.5 % vol.
