I use Lavin 1116 for most fruit wines. It is readily available locally and works great.

How does 1118 do with fruit wines? I have six packets of it and am planning on doing some fruit here real soon.

I like Red Star Cote des Blancs for all my fruit wines.

I would rather you use Lalvin 1116 over 1118
