´Vinho Verde´ wines production from differential fermentation: the role of musts sulphitation as a preservation strategy to keep the musts character

Abstract

High-volume mass-market white wines production method by means of harvest-deferred fermentation from desulphited musts allows an efficient business management by avoiding the seasonality in wine sector. This technology has been used in the production of light and fresh wines from Vinhos Verdes Appellation (VVA – Portugal). This Appellation presents a diversity of varieties and wine styles, and is known for producing light and fresh wines, but also mineral, complex and structured ones, with, in general, low ethanol content. The light and fresh VV wines are characterized by herbaceous, citrus, tropical fruits, orchard fruits and floral notes. Thus, the goal of this work was to unveil based on physical-chemical data if sulphitated musts from VVA preserve the organoleptic potential that allows the production of high-volume wines with the typical light and fresh VV character. A set of musts were produced at industrial scale from grapes harvested from different sub-regions of VVA, which were then sulphited and stored for 1 year. For comparison purpose, sulphitated musts from Beira Atlântico and Trás-os-Montes Portuguese regions were also characterized. Free volatile and glycosidically-linked compounds were determined by advanced gas chromatography (GC×GC-ToFMS). The physical-chemical parameters currently used in musts quality control were also determined. Statistical tools were applied by combining all data domains. The aroma potential of musts was performed based on the construction of aroma networks [1].A total of 145 volatile compounds were putative identified, which varied from 136 to 142, in must from Cávado and Lima sub-regions, respectively. Regarding the glycosidically-linked fraction, 29 compounds were putatively identified, which varied from 20 to 24 in must from Cávado and Amarante sub-regions. Clustering analysis unveiled the formation of 3 main clusters, one of which includes all VVA musts, which allows to infer that geographical region is the main distinguishing factor. VVA musts were characterized with higher total acidity, and lower °Brix, potency alcoholic strength and density, compared with the samples from other regions. Moreover, esters, monoterpenic and sesquiterpenic compounds detected in VVA musts may contribute with citrus, floral, orchard and tropical fruits aromas, which are relevant aromas for sensory characteristics of VV wines. Thus, must sulphitation, a methodology used to extend its preservation beyond the harvest season, seems to keep the particular musts character, which is extremely important for the consistency of light and fresh high-volume VV wines.

NEW TREATMENTS FOR TEMPRANILLO WINES BY USING CABERNET SAUVIGNON VINE-SHOOTS AND MICRO-OXYGENATION

Toasted vine-shoots as enological additive represents a promising topic due to their significant effect on wine profile. However, the use of this new enological tool with SEGs varieties different than wine and combined with others winemaking technologies, such as micro-oxygenation (MOX), has not been studied so far, despite this combination could result in wine with high chemical and organoleptic quality.

IDENTIFICATION AND LEVELS OF PHENOLIC COMPOUNDS (TANINS, ANTHO-CYANS) IN RED VARIETAL WINES (PROKUPAC AND BLACK TAMJANIKA) FROM SERBIA

The phenolic compounds of red wines represent a source of numerous benefits for human health, which is why they are a constant subject of scientific research. Winemaking in Serbia has a growing economic significance, with particularly autochthonous varieties included [1]. This research identifies and quantifies phenolic compounds of Serbian red varietal wines of Prokupac and Black Tamjanika varieties. Quantification of the level of phenolics has been conducted, including molecular tannins [(+)-catechin, (-)-epicatechin, procyanidin dimers B1, B2, B3, B4], molecular anthocyanins, and the mean degree of polymerization of tannins by HPLC by UV detection, total antioxidant capacity via spectrophotometric methods and chromatic characteristics via CIELAB.

Retrospective analysis of our knowledge regarding the genetics of relevant traits for rootstock breeding 

Rootstocks were the first sustainable and environmentally friendly strategy to cope with a major threat for Vitis vinifera cultivation. In addition to providing Phylloxera resistance, they play an important role in protecting against other soil-borne pests, such as nematodes, and in adapting V. vinifera to limiting abiotic conditions. Today viticulture has to adapt to ongoing climate change whilst simultaneously reducing its environmental impact. In this context, rootstocks are a central element in the development of agro-ecological practices that increase adaptive potential with low external inputs. Despite the apparent diversity of the Vitis genus, only few rootstock varieties are used worldwide and most of them have a very narrow genetic background. This means that there is considerable scope to breed new, improved rootstocks to adapt viticulture for the future.

Viticultural potential assessment and its spatial delineation analysis in Goriška Brda viticultural area

Viticultural potential has a complex conditioning, determined by relief,
soil, climate and lithology. Delineation of viticultural potential from vineyard areas is essential for the purpose to collect the necessary data for viticultural zoning. Using this data, we can achieve greater yield quality, which is the most important criteria in viticulture. The main purpose of this research is
characterizing of viticultural potential and zoning of homogeneous viticultural zones in Goriška Brda region by assessing the suitability of defined ecological factors.

INVESTIGATION OF MALIC ACID METABOLIC PATHWAYS DURING ALCOHOLIC FERMENTATION USING GC-MS, LC-MS, AND NMR DERIVED 13C-LABELED DATA

Malic acid has a strong impact on wine pH and the contribution of fermenting yeasts to modulate its concentration has been intensively investigated in the past. Recent advances in yeast genetics have shed light on the unexpected property of some strains to produce large amounts of malic acid (“acidic strains”) while most of the wine starters consume it during the alcoholic fermentation. Being a key metabolite of the central carbohydrate metabolism, malic acid participates to TCA and glyoxylate cycles as well as neoglucogenesis. Although present at important concentrations in grape juice, the metabolic fate of malic acid has been poorly investigated.

NEW INSIGHTS INTO VOLATILE SULPHUR COMPOUNDS SCALPING ON MICROAGGLOMERATED WINE CLOSURES

The evolution of wine during bottle ageing has been of great interest to ensure consistent quality over time. While the role of wine closures on the amount of oxygen is well-known [1], closures could also play other roles such as the scalping phenomenon of flavour compounds. Flavour scalping has been described as the sorption of flavour compounds by the packaging material, which could result in losses of flavour intensity. It has been reported in the literature that volatile sulphur compounds (VSC) can be scalped on wine closures depending on the type of closure (traditional and agglomerated cork, screw-cap, synthetic [2]).
