Interaction between commercial mannoproteins and phenolic compounds of two red wines from different Portuguese grape cultivars


The interaction between mannoproteins and wine phenolic compounds is a subject of great interest as some studies show the possible impact in color stability and an improvement in the sensory characteristics namely the reduction of red wine astringency. Several commercial oenological products contain mannoproteins in their composition having the purpose of stabilizing wine polyphenols and resulting in wines with higher color stability and better mouth-feel. In the present work the influence of two commercial mannoproteins in the color stability of two different red wines for ten months is studied. Although there was no influence on color parameters, it is possible that the commercial mannoproteins used in this work have some influence in tannin aggregation evolution, contributing to the delay of tannin polymerization in red wines.

The use of zirconia dioxide enclosed in a metallic cage for the stabilisation of Chardonnay white wine

White wines are commonly stabilised by removing the heat unstable proteins through adsorption by bentonite, an effective but inefficient wine processing step. Alternative absorbents are thus sought and zirconium dioxide (zirconia) is recognised as a promising candidate.

Evolution of biogenic amines content in wine during sample conservation – method optimisation for analysis of biogenicamines

The present paper reports the development of an optimized method for simultaneous analysis of
8 biogenic amines (Histamine, Methylamine, Ethylamine, Tyramine, Putrescine, Cadaverine, Phenethylamine, and Isoamylamine). It is based on a method developed by Gomez-Alonso et al. in 2007.

Investigation of the effect of gelatine and egg albumin fining and cross-flow microfiltration on the phenolic composition of Pinotage red wine

Results indicated that cross-flow microfiltration removed similarly to fining treatments the most astringent tannins, but cross-flow microfiltration also removed up to 14 % more colour. RP-HPLC and spectrophotometric results showed that egg albumin is a softer fining treatment compared to gelatine and cross-flow microfiltration.

Study of varietal wines from the qualified origin denomination Rioja (Spain): analysis of wine colour, polysaccharides, polyphenols and biogenic amines and amino acides 

The cultivar with a greater oenological potential was ‘Monastel’, which showed overall better values than ‘Tempranillo’ in colour intensity, total polyphenol index, wine colour, total anthocyanins, resveratrol and gallic acid.

Effectiveness of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) on tartaric stabilization of cava base wine

Recent EU regulations allow the use of carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) as a stabilization agent in wine. We tested CMC in bases for sparkling wines, which must be stabilized before the second fermentation that raises alcohol concentration by 1,5%.
