MODELLING THE AGEING POTENTIAL OF SYRAH RED WINES BY ACCELERATED AGEING TESTS: INFLUENCE OF ANTIOXIDANT ASSAYS AND PHENOLIC COMPOSITION

Abstract

Red wine ageing is an important step in the red wine evolution and impacts its chemical and sensory characteristics through many chemicals and physico-chemical reactions. The kinetics of these evolutions depend on the wine studied and influence the wine ageing potential. Generally, high quality red wines require a longer period of bottle ageing before consumption¹. The ageing potential is an important parameter for wine quality and is related to the capacity of a wine to undergo oxidation over time². Phenolic compounds which are ones of the main substrates for oxidation can then potentially modulate ageing potential³.

The aim of this study was to assess the influence of phenolic composition and antioxidant properties on the ageing capacity of 14 Syrah red wines. This ageing capacity was measured by accelerated ageing tests (AATs) recently developed in our laboratory (thermal test at 60°C, enzymatic test with laccase and chemical test with H₂O₂)4. Different parameters were measured such as anthocyanin and flavanol contents, spectrophotometric antioxidant assays, voltammetric behaviour, colour parameters and free SO₂ levels. Statistical analyses were performed to model the results of the ATTs from the initial phenolic composition and antioxidant properties of Syrah red wines.

High correlations were obtained between the initial phenolic composition and the antioxidant properties of red wines. The results showed significant differences between the three studied ATTs, revealing specific mechanisms for each accelerated ageing condition. The Partial least squares (PLS) regression models results, based on measured parameters, had overall very good accuracy and involved different explaining variables for each test. The models have excellent predictive capacities with correlation coefficients (r²) between 0.89 et 0.98.

FREE TERPENE RESPONSE OF ‘MOSCATO BIANCO’ VARIETY TO GRAPE COLD STORAGE

Temperature control is crucial in wine production, starting from grape harvest to the bottled wine storage. Climate change and global warming affect the timing of grape ripening, and harvesting is often done during hot summer days, influencing berry integrity, secondary metabolites potential, enzyme and oxidation phenomena, and even fermentation kinetics. To curb this phenomenon, pre-fermentative cold storage can help preserve the grapes and possibly increase the concentration of key secondary metabolites. In this study, the effect of grape pre-fermentative cold storage was assessed on the ‘Moscato bianco’ white grape cultivar, known for its varietal terpenes (65% of free terpenes represented by linalool and its derivatives) and widely used in Piedmont (Italy) to produce Asti DOCG wines.

PROTEOMIC STUDY OF THE USE OF MANNOPROTEINS BY OENOCOCCUS OENI TO IMPROVE MALOLACTIC FERMENTATION

Malolactic fermentation (MLF) is a desired process to decrease acidity in wine. This fermentation, carried out mostly by Oenococcus oeni, is sometimes challenging due to the wine stress factors affecting this lactic acid bacterium. Wine is a harsh environment for microbial survival due to the presence of ethanol and the low pH, and with limited nutrients that compromise O. oeni development. This may result in slow or stuck fermentations. After the alcoholic fermentation the nutrients that remain in the medium, mainly released by yeast, can be used in a beneficial way by O. oeni during MLF.

NEW TOOL FOR SIMULTANEOUS MEASUREMENT OF OXYGEN CONSUMPTION AND COLOUR MODIFICATIONS IN WINES

Measuring the effect of oxygen consumption on the colour of wines as the level of dissolved oxygen decreases over time is very useful to know how much oxygen a wine is able to consume without significantly altering its colour. The changes produced in wine after being exposed to high oxygen concen-trations have been studied by different authors, but in all cases the wine has been analysed once the oxygen consumption process has been completed. This work presents the results obtained with the use of an equipment designed and made to measure simultaneously the level of dissolved oxygen and the spectrum of the wine, during the oxygen consumption process from saturation levels with air to very low levels, which indicate the total consumption of the dosed oxygen.

RED WINE AGING THROUGH 1H-NMR METABOLOMICS

Premium red wines are often aged in oak barrel. This widespread winemaking process is used, among others, to provide roundness and complexity to the wine. The study of wine evolution during barrel aging is crucial to better ensure control of wine quality.
¹H-NMR has already been proved to be an efficient tool to monitor winemaking process [1]. Indeed, it is a non-destructive technique, it requires a small amount of sample and a short time of analysis, yet it provides clues about several chemical families.
