Many local wines are characterised by lack of aroma and complexity. Among these are Chenin blanc wines, the most widely planted cultivar in South Africa. Research results from a previous project (WW 10-08) showed that Candida pulcherrima yeasts could be used to increase Chenin blanc wine quality.
The aim of this project was therefore the formulation of optimal cellar practices for the use of selected C. pulcherrima strains for increased quality of Chenin blanc wines. In addition, the objectives of the envisioned extension of project WW 10-08 (completed 31/03/2004) was incorporated under this project.
