Yeast derivatives: a promising alternative in wine oxidation prevention?

Abstract

AIM: Oxidation processes constitute a main problem in winemaking. Oxidation result in color browning and varietal aroma loss, which are key attributes of wine organoleptic quality [1].Despite the mechanisms involved in wine oxidation have been extensively reviewed [2],the protection of wine against oxidative spoilage remains one of the main goals of winemaking. Moreover, oxidation of young white wines become particularly critical mostly when low levels of SO2 are used. SO2 is indeed one of the most efficient wine antioxidants used to prevent oxidation and microbial spoilage. However, intolerances caused by SO2 have led to the reduction of its concentration in wines. In a competitive global winemaking market strategy, it is crucial to reduce or even eliminate the use of SO2 and to search for new healthier strategies. In the last decade, Yeast Derivatives (YDs) were proposed as a new strategy to control wine oxidation [3].These products are obtained from yeasts by hydrolytic processes and dried to obtain the commercial products. The aim of this work was to carry out a preliminary investigation of YDs with different composition on

(i) their capacity to prevent oxidation of white wine and

(ii) to evaluate their impact on wine quality.

METHODS: 2 YDs were used for all the experiments: a YDR naturally rich in reducing compounds and a YDL naturally rich in lipids. White wines vinified with no sulfite additions were supplemented with one of the YD and submitted at low and high oxidation: 4 mg/L and 8 mg/L of dissolved O2 respectively. A Pyroscience optical O2 sensor was used for the dissolved oxygen monitoring. Wines analyses were performed after the complete oxygen consumption: wine analysis (Foss), color (CIELab), glutathione (GSH, HPLC-fluo), ethanal (GC-MS), redox potential (cyclic voltammetry), sensorial analysis. These results were compared with those obtained for wines with no antioxidant treatment and with SO2 addition.

RESULTS: Results showed that yeast derivatives and SO2 permit to reduce the O2 consumption rate of 55 and 60% respectively than the untreated control without antioxidant. In comparison with the control wines, YD have an impact on color but they allow the reduction of wine browning. Voltammetry analyses showed that the wines treated by YD have a voltammetric profile suggesting that they are more resistant to oxidation than the untreated control. This behavior is comparable to wines treated with SO2. In addition, wines treated with YD present a lower ethanol amount than the control and SO2 wines. The YD naturally rich in reducing compounds show better preservation of wine’s GSH content. Finally, during wine sensorial analysis, the tasters prefer wines treated with YD than wine without treatment.

CONCLUSIONS

This work opens new perspectives for the development of yeast preparations usable as alternatives or as complements to sulfites and allows the improvement of white wines oxidative stability.

Organic volatile compounds as suitable markers of grapevine response to defense elicitors in the vineyard

In greenhouse, emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC) by grapevine leaves has already been reported in response to the defence elicitor sulfated laminarin (PS3) [1]. In order to check that this response was not specific to PS3, experiments were conducted on Vitis cv Marselan plantlets with several other elicitors of different chemical structures: i.e. Bastid® (COS-OGA),

Combined abiotic-biotic plant stresses on the roots of grapevine

In the 19th century, devastating outbreaks of phylloxera (Daktulosphaira vitifoliae Fitch), almost brought European viticulture to its knees. Phylloxera does not only take energy in form of sugars from the vine, but also affects the up- and down- regulations of genes, acts as a carbon sink and reprograms the physiology of the grapevines, including nutrient uptake and the defense system [1]. A key trait of rootstocks is the ability to perform well under high lime conditions as about 30 % of the land surface has calcareous soil. Iron deficiency not only causes the well-known problems of lime-induced chlorosis and stunted growth, but also affects the entire plant metabolism.

A climatic characterisation of the sub-Appellations in the Niagara Peninsula wine region

This study used climatic and topographic data to characterize the sub-appellations that have been recently delineated in the Niagara Peninsula viticulture area in order to assess their potential for ripening early to late season Vitis vinifera varieties. No major differences were found in the ripening-period mean temperatures, but major differences in the diurnal temperature ranges were observed.
