ABSTRACT

We previously reported a study on the microbial flora of Alicante wines at different stages of vinification. On the basis of those data, we selected a Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain which is capable of producing high quality wine in pilot fermentation experiments with musts. The strain was characterized using several DNA fingerprinting techniques. These results open the way to use the strain as a dry yeast in order to perform controlled fermentations.
