Industry Seminar: Using ML as a Driver for Red Wine Style – June 20, 2018 ASEV Monterey

Come see Dr. Eveline Bartowsky of Lallemand Australia present during the Industry Seminar, “Using Malolactic Bacteria as a Driver for Red Wine Style” at the ASEV meeting in Monterey, California on June 20. The conversion of L-malic acid into L-lactic acid and CO2 is not the only reaction conducted by malolactic bacteria during the process referred to as Malolactic fermentation. During this process the bacteria are growing and metabolizing and by doing so are forming an interesting array of metabolic end products. During this focused session we will appreciate the many finer points of MLF and in particular how the bacteria can drive wine style by influencing flavors and color.
