RD 202 is enhancing red berry, blackberry, black currant, tobacco and prune aromas in red wine. It is recommended to produce red wines with or without wood maturation.

RD 202 has a high alcohol tolerance, good fructose utilization and a stimulating effect on malolactic fermentation, when compared to other red wine strains. It is therefore especially suitable for the vinification of high sugar musts where the resulting high alcohols at the end of fermentation can potentially cause sluggish or stuck alcoholic fermentations and/or problematic MLF's.
