Apiculate yeasts from Hanseniaspora genus are predominant on the native flora of grapevines, while Hanseniaspora uvarum is well known for its abundant presence in grapes, it results generally, in detrimental quality effects on wine due to high production of acetic acid. By contrast, Hanseniaspora vineae is better adapted to fermentation, increasing flavor complexity in wines as it has been demonstrated in winemaking practices during the last decade. We obtained a collection of more than 22 different Hanseniaspora vineae strains from which we could detect, by a plating screening method, high and moderate protease activity. In this study, we tested these strains under real winemaking conditions on a Sauvignon blanc white wine must. Results obtained demonstrated that there is an interesting protease active diversity in all H. vineae strains when compared to conventional fermentations conducted by Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Four H. vineae strains showed a decrease in wine protein turbidity, up to three times lower than that observed in S. cerevisiae, which imply a significant decrease in the demand for bentonite before bottling. This attribute of some H. vineaestrains should be very attractive at the commercial level to reduce manipulations and flavor removal in the production of delicate white wines such as Sauvignon blanc.
