The EC 2019/187 shows the rules for the usage of ethyl alcohols to fortify wines. These must be obtained from products derived from agriculture and the use of alcohols of mineral or chemical origin is not authorized. The ethyl alcohols authorized for the fortification in the D.O. Sherry have wine origin. But, there are other alcohols that could be equally productive and at a lower economic cost, such as beet or sugar cane alcohol. The effect that different types of ethyl alcohols may have on the yeasts of flor remains unknown. Our goal was to analyze the effects of other alcohols (beet, sugar cane, etc.) on the development of the veil of flor. In this way, the yeasts that constitute the veil of flor of Fino wines were isolated and identified by microbiological techniques and characterized by molecular tools and by biochemical and microbiological tests such as cellular hydrophobicity, flocculation, acetic acid production, etc. Then, base wines were fortified with different distilled alcohols, such as malt brandy, tequila, among others. Biological aging under the veil of flor was monitored to later determine the volatile fractions. Alcohol from sugar cane could be a promising alternative to fortify Fino wines.
