TARTARIC STABILIZATION MAY AFFECT THE COLOR AND POLYPHENOLIC COMPOSITION OF TANNAT RED WINES FROM URUGUAY

Abstract

Tartrate precipitation affects the properties of wines, due to the formation of crystals that cause turbidity, even after being bottled. The forced tartaric stabilization is carried out frequently for young wines, through various physicochemical procedures. The traditional treatment for tartaric stabilization is refrigeration, but it can have a negative effect on wine’s sensory properties, and particularly on the color of red wines. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of different tartaric stabilization options on the color and phenolic composition of Tannat red wines from Uruguay. Cold treatment (C: 14 days at 4 ° C), mannoproteins (M: 100 mL / HL), arabic gum (AG: 200 g / HL), carboxymethylcellulose (CMC: 10 g / HL) and carboxymethylcellulose + arabic gum (AG CMC + 10 g / HL + 200 g / HL) were tested. The chromatic properties, basic composition, polyphenolic indexes, and anthocyanins and derived-anthocyanin pigments contents were analyzed. The initial impact of the cold treatment was significant, but differences with the other wines were attenuated over time. At 15 days of the start of the essay, C wine had significantly lower color intensity and was much brighter and less red than control wine. C had too the lowest anthocyanin and proanthocyanidin contents. Anthocyanin profile of this wine shows an increase in the proportion of non-acylated glucosides and malvidin, and a decrease in the percentages of delphinidin, cyanidin and coumaryl-glucosides. Anyway, the typical anthocyanin profile of the variety was slightly modified. All wines showed low differences in color and polyphenolic composition at five months from stabilization. However, the contents of free anthocyanins were decreased by all stabilization treatments in relation to the control wines. CMC+GA wines had the highest color intensity and proanthocyanidin levels while M and CMC wines had the highest catechin contents. At this time, it was verified that the contents of free anthocyanins were diminished by all treatments in relation to the control wine. At 14 months, CMC+GA wines had the highest colour intensity, and the lowest luminosity (L*). Colour intensities of C and CMC wines had not differences respect to those of control wines. However, all wines showed precipitation of tartaric salts at 5 and at 14 months from stabilization. Therefore, the tested options (products and doses) do not stabilize red wines adequately.

A NEW TOOL TO QUANTIFY COMPOUNDS POTENTIALLY INVOLVED IN THE FRUITY AROMA OF RED WINES. DEVELOPMENT AND APPLICATION TO THE STU-DY OF THE FRUITY CHARACTER OF RED WINES MADE FROM VARIOUS GRAPE VARIETIES

A wide range of olfactory descriptors ranging from fresh and jammy fruit notes to cooked and oxidized fruit notes could describe the fruity aroma of red wines [1]. The fruity character of a wine is mainly related to the grape variety selected, to the terroir and the vinification process applied for its conception. In white wines, some volatile compounds confer directly their aroma to the wine while the question of “key” compound is more complex in red wines. According to many studies performed over the past decades, some fruity ethyl esters are directly involved in the fruity perception of red wines while others, present at subthreshold concentrations, participate indirectly to the fruity expression via perceptive interactions [2].

MICROFLUIDIC PLATFORM FOR SORTING YEAST CELLS ACCORDING TO THEIR MORPHOLOGY

In this work we briefly present a microfluidic device aiming to sort yeast cells according to their morphology. The technology is based upon microfluidic chips made out of Polydimethylsiloxane and glass using soft lithography processes and replica molding. The microfluidic device was used for encapsulating single yeast cells in liquid droplets containing growth medium. Liquid droplet containing yeast cells were sorted using a real time imaging and decision-making process.

FLOW CYTOMETRY, A POWERFUL AND SUSTAINABLE METHOD WITH MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS IN ENOLOGY

Flow cytometry (FCM) is a powerful technique allowing the detection, characterization and quantification of microbial populations in different fields of application (medical environment, food industry, enology, etc.). Depending on the fluorescent markers and specific probes used, FCM provides information on the physiological state of the cell and allows the quantification of a microorganism of interest within a mixed population. For 15 years, the enological sector has shown growing interest in this technique, which is now used to determine the populations present (of interest or spoilage) and the physiological state of microorganisms at the different stages of winemaking.

AGEING BOTTLED WINES SUBMERGED IN SEA: DOES IT IMPACT WINE COMPOSITION?

Aging wines is a common practice in oenology, which in recent years has undergone some innovations. Currently, we are witnessing the practice of aging bottled wine in depth, immersed in the sea or in reservoirs, for variable periods of time, but so far, little is known about the impact of aging in depth on the physicochemical properties, of wines.
The objective of this work was to evaluate the impact of this practice on the physicochemical characteristics, in particular to verify changes in the volatile composition of wines bottled and subsequently immersed in depth. A red wine from Cabernet Sauvignon was bottled and a set of bottles were submerged from July to February (2020), another set of bottles were submerged from February to September (2020) and another set was kept in the wine cellar. Bottles from each set were analyzed (in triplicate) in July 2021.

EMERGENCE OF INORGANIC PHOSPHONATE RESIDUES IN GRAPEVINE PLANT PARTS, BERRIES AND WINES FROM SOURCES OTHER THAN FOLIAR SPRAYING

Inorganic phosphonates are known to effectively support the control of grapevine downy mildew in vi- ticulture. Their application helps the plant to induce an earlier and more effective pathogen defense. However, inorganic phosphonates have been banned in organic viticulture due to their classification as plant protection products since October 2013. Despite the ban, phosphonate has been recently detected in organic wines.
