I had to order 500g of the SVG and since I'm not brewing 2 milion gallons, I'll be selling off 15 g packets of the stuff for $2.50 which includes S&H.
Email me and let me know if you want some.

SVG: For classical Sauvignon blanc character
The ITV in collaboration with Lallemand selected SVG from the Loire specifically for the enhancement of typical Sauvignon blanc varietal character, diminished acidity, and good fermentation kinetics. SVG will metabolize roughly 25% of the malic acid helping to naturally lower acidity. In tastings of Sancerre and Pouilly Fume wines fermented with different yeasts, the wines fermented with SVG scored higher than those fermented with other yeasts commonly used for Sauvignon blanc. These Sauvignon blanc wines were described as having more intensity and a better balance of mineral, citrus and spicy notes. Aside from Sauvignon blanc, SVG is also recommended for aromatic white varieties such as Riesling or Pinot gris.
