Hanseniaspora vineae is an apiculate yeast that can be used for the production of interesting commercial wines, due to its contribution of fermentative volatiles. This paper presents a detailed comparative study of the use of H. vineae, compared to pure fermentations of S. cerevisiae in Tempranillo and Albillo rosé wines. Fermentations were carried out in oak barrels and stainless steel barrels. The results indicated that fermentation with H. vineae resulted in wines with residual sugars below 3.4 g/L and similar general characteristics, compared to S. cerevisiae. However, H. vineae wines contain up to 44% more total anthocyanins, resulting in an appreciable improvement in colour. In addition, H. vineae produced up to 65% more 2-phenylethyl acetate in stainless steel barrels and 2.5 times more terpene alcohols in oak barrels. Therefore, the use of H. vineae results in a more attractive colour, as well as fruity and floral organoleptic characteristics of rosé wines.
