Factors influencing the production of the antioxidant hydroxytyrosol during alcoholic fermentation: Yeast Assimilable Nitrogen and Sugar content.

Abstract

Hydroxytyrosol (HT) is well known for its potent antioxidant activity and anticarcinogenic, antimicrobial, cardioprotective and neuroprotective properties. One possible explanation to its origin in wines is the synthesis from tyrosol, which in turn is produced from the Ehrlich pathway by yeasts.  This work aims to explore the factors that could increase the final content as the initial concentration of yeast assimilable nitrogen (YAN) and sugar. Two different concentrations of YAN were proved between 210mg/L and 300 mg/L. Additionally, two different concentrations of sugar were used: 100g/L and 240 g/L.  Alcoholic fermentations in synthetic must were performed with the strain QA23. Commercial Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeasts QA23 were used, as well as a strain with a specific modification to increase the production of fusel alcohols. Experimental design includes different YAN and sugar concentrations. The analysis was performed in a Thermo Scientific liquid chromatography system consisting of a binary UHPLC Dionex Ultimate 3000RS, connected to a quadrupole orbitrap Qexactive hybrid mass spectrometer (Thermo Fisher Scientific, Bremen, Germany), which was equipped with a heated electrospray ionization probe (HESI-II). The column used was a ZORBAX SB-C18 (2.1 × 100 mm, 1.8-μm particle size) Higher concentrations of hydroxytyrosol were obtained in synthetic must with higher amount of sugar (240g/L) and lesser YAN (210mg/L). Furthermore, the modified yeast presents a higher capacity to produce HT and tyrosol. Selecting the adequate conditions of sugar and YAN can increase the HT and tyrosol content 10 times.These results might explain certain differences between HT content in wines.

Physiological and growth reaction of Shiraz/101-14 Mgt to row orientation and soil water status

Advanced knowledge on grapevine row orientation is required to improve establishment, management and outcomes of vineyards on terroirs with different environmental conditions (climate, soil, topography) and in view of a future change to more extreme climatic conditions. The purpose of this study was to determine the combined effect of row orientation, plant water status and ripeness level on the physiological and viticultural reaction of Shiraz/101-14 Mgt.

Effects of mechanical leafing and deficit irrigation on Cabernet Sauvignon grown in warm climate of California

San Joaquin Valley accounts for 40% of wine grape acreage and produces 70% of wine grape in California. Fruit quality is one of most important factors which impact the economical sustainability of farming wine grapes in this region. Due to the recent drought and expected labor cost increase, the wine industry is thrilled to understand how to improve fruit quality while maintaining the yield with less water and labor input. The present study aims to study the interactive effects of mechanical leafing and deficit irrigation on yield and berry compositions of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in warm climate of California.

The effects of cane girdling on berry texture properties and the concentration of some aroma compounds in three table grape cultivars

The marketability of the table grapes is highly influenced by the consumer demand; therefore the market value of the table grapes is mainly characterized by its berry size, colour, taste and texture. Girdling could cause accumulation of several components in plants above the ringing of the phloem including clusters and resulting improved maturity. The aim of the experiments was to examine the effect of girdling on berry texture characteristics and aroma concentration.

Application of a fluorescence-based method to evaluate the ripening process and quality of Pinot Blanc grape

The chemical composition of grape berries at harvest is one of the most important factors that should be considered to produce high quality wines. Among the different chemical classes which characterize the grape juice, the polyphenolic compound, such as flavonoids, contribute to the final taste and color of wines. Recently, an innovative non-destructive method, based on chlorophyll fluorescence, was developed to estimate the phenolic maturity of red grape varieties through the evaluation of anthocyanins accumulated in the berry skin. To date, only few data are available about the application of this method on white grape varieties.

Different yield regulation strategies in semi-minimal-pruned hedge (SMPH) and impact on bunch architecture

Yields in the novel viticulture training system Semi-Minimal-Pruned Hedge (SMPH) are generally higher compared to the traditional Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP). Excessive yields have a negative impact on the vine and wine quality, which can result in substantial losses in yield in subsequent vintages (alternate bearing) or penalties in fruit quality. Therefore yield regulation is essential. The bunch architecture in SMPH differs from VSP. Generally there is a higher amount but smaller bunches with lower single berry weights in SMPH compared to VSP.
