Potassium sorbate is very popular in brewing and as a stabiliser and it produces sorbic acid when added to wines. It serves two purposes. When active fermentation has ceased and the wine is racked for the last time, Potassium sorbate will render any surviving yeast incapable of multiplying. Yeast living at that moment can continue fermenting any residual sugar into CO2 but when they die no new yeast will be present to cause future fermentation.
In short, Potassium sorbate has lots of uses and is the most commonly used preservative in food.
