Impact of strain and inoculation time on yeasts interactions: mass spectrometry-based study.

Abstract

Under oenological conditions, when yeasts grow simultaneously during alcoholic fermentation, they often do not coexist passively, and in most cases, physiological and metabolic interactions are established between them. They interact by producing unpredictable compounds and fermentation products that can affect the chemical composition of the wine and therefore alter its aromatic and sensory profile. With its great resolution and excellent mass accuracy, ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometry (uHRMS) is the perfect tool to analyze the yeast metabolome at the end of alcoholic fermentation.

In this study, we aimed to characterize different non-Saccharomyces (NS) yeast species and to study the influence of these strains in sequential cultures with Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S). We show that tremendous differences exist between species in terms of metabolites, and we could clearly differentiate wines according to the yeast strain used in single cultures and markers, which reflect important differences between the yeast species. uHRMS was able to distinguish thousands of metabolites and provides deep insights into grape must composition allowing better understanding of the yeast-yeast interactome. Single cultures could be easily discriminated from sequential cultures based on their metabolite profile. New metabolites appeared in wines from sequential fermentation compared to single fermentation. The dominance of S, characterized by a metabolic richness not found with NS, is dependent on inoculation time and on the yeast species present. The wine composition of sequential culture is not only the addition of metabolites from each species but is the result of complex interactions. Co-inoculation leads to the formation of new compounds, reflecting a reshuffling of yeast metabolism linked to interaction mechanisms.

Understanding provenance and terroir in Australian Pinot noir

Aims: This study aimed to (1) characterise colour and phenolic profiles of commercial Australian Pinot noir wines, (2) understand regional drivers of sensory and volatile profiles of commercial Australian Pinot noir wines, and (3) generate a deeper understanding of where Australian Pinot noir wines profiles sit in an international context.

Micro-meteorological, compositional and transcriptional study of corvina grape color during ripening

Grape anthocyanin content and composition could affect the quality and the production strategies of red wines. Differences in the pigment composition modify the color properties in terms of hue, extractability and stability. Thus, for the production of a highly qualitative wine such as “Amarone”, variations in the pigment composition are not negligible. The aim of this work was the investigation of the anthocyanin profile changes during ripening in Corvina grapes, the main cultivar for the “Amarone” production. The experiment took place in 2015, in two vineyards located in Valpollicella (Italy).

Relationship between chemical parameters of tannins and in-mouth attributes of grape phenolic fractions

Establish relationships between taste and mouthfeel properties of grapes and tannin-related chemical parameters. Tempranillo Tinto and Garnacha Tinta grapes were harvested from distinct blocks in different dates; each sample collection date was separated by one week. Grapes were destemmed and macerated in 15% of ethanol for one week. The polyphenolic fraction (PF) of samples was submitted to solid phase extraction on C18 cartridges and recovered with ethanol. PFs were reconstituted in wine model and their taste and mouthfeel properties were characterised by rate-K-attributes methodology. In parallel, concentration (TC) and activity (TAc) of tannins as well as the concentration of tannins linked to anthocyanins (T-A) were determined using HPLC-UV–VIS.

Late leaf removal does not consistently delay ripeningin semillon in Australia

Context and purpose of the study ‐ An advancement of grapevine phenological development has been observed worldwide in the last two decades. In South Australia this phenomenon is even more accentuated since grapevine is often grown in a hot climate. The main consequences are earlier harvests at higher sugar levels which also result in more alcoholic wines. These are deemed undesirable for the Australian wine industry with consumer preferences shifting towards lower alcohol wines. Vineyard practices can be implemented to control and delay ripening. Amongst them, apical late leaf removal has been successfully applied in Europe to delay ripening by up to two weeks in Sangiovese, Aglianico and Riesling. In those studies, no negative effects were observed on grape colour, phenolics and on the carbohydrate storage capacity of the vines. To date, this technique has not been studied in Australia. In this study late leaf removal, apical to the bunch zone was applied to the variety Semillon for four seasons and compared to an untreated control.

Influence of the malolactic fermentation on wine metabolomics or drastic metabolomics changes due to malolactic fermentation

It is well known that lactic acid bacteria modify the wine volatile compound. However, very few data are available regarding metabolite changes that occurred during the malolactic fermentation (MLF).
