Where to find Malolactic Culture (wine) ((sorry))

Sorry to talk about wine on a beer forum but I cant seem to find a similar forum for winemakers in NZ.


I got given a bunch (actually a few bunches about 60L worth) of Pinot Noir grapes and am having a go at making some wine but I cant seem to find any malolactic cultures for sale in NZ.  I phoned brewers Coop and Dunedin Malt House and have googled a bit but cant seem to find any.  Given the amount of cold climate red wine produced here there must be some about.  Any hints on where to look?

I'd just do some-cold calling. Try some of the smaller vineyards and just ask to speaker to the wine-maker. You'd be suprised what you could get if you ask nicely. Maybe make sure you could get a courier to pick it up or something and they might help you out. If you don't ask, you don't get.
i'm in the same boat,i advertised for a few grapes so i could try wine and the first call offered me over a ton! i had 4 offers altogether! i called a couple of vineyards with no luck-said they didn't use it, i'm going to call some more next week and see if i get any luck.

The guy I got the grapes off said that he would see what he could find for me if I had trouble finding it.  They have some at morewine dot com but it seems a little pricy at $35USD + unknown shipping, though that packet can do 66 galons and I only need about 60L worth. I guess thats not too much for the amount of wine but this is just a little experiment, I'm not about to become a winemaker.

If I get some I'll see about hooking you up with some.  White labs and wyeast and both make it, perhaps I could chase up the wyeast importers.

Found some at pros.co.nz

(they really need some search engine optimisation for their website, I really should have been able to find it with the googling I done)
