Abstract

Kluyveromyces marxianus IMB3 yeast cells were immobilized on delignified cellulosic material, apple, and quince separately. Both immobilized and free cells were used in high-temperature wine making, and their fermented grape must contained 3 to 4% alcohol. Semisweet wines were produced by the addition of potable alcohol to the fermented must. Preliminary sensory evaluation of the produced semisweet wines showed good flavor and aroma. The final product contained extremely low levels of higher and amyl alcohols while ethyl acetate was at levels usually present in wines. The ferment produced may be blended with other products to improve their quality.
