Which heat test really represents the haze risk of a white Sauvignon wine ?

Abstract

AIM: Different heat tests are used to predict a white wine haze risk after bottling. The most used tests are 30-60 min. at 80°C. Nevertheless, there is a lack of information about the relationship between the wine haze observed after such tests and the turbidities observed in the bottles after the storage/transport of the wines in more realistic Summer conditions (35-46°C during 3-12 days).

 METHODS: 24 Sauvignon wines (Loire Valley – France) produced during the vintages 2018 and 2019 were studied. Six heat tests were applied on during 5-30-60 min. at 80°C and during 30-60-120 min. at 50°C. The results were compared with the turbidity reached by the wines under Summer conditions (35 to 46°C, from 1 to 14 days) and representing 6 tests too. The Pearson correlation coefficients (PCC) were calculated for all of these 12 heat tests when compared two by two.

RESULTS: The turbidities of the wines subjected to Summer temperature conditions (35-43°C) were highly correlated with the turbidities developed by the Sauvignon wines after heating 30 or 60 min. at 50°C (0.980

EFFECT OF FUMARIC ACID ON SPONTANEOUS FERMENTATION IN GRAPE MUST

Malolactic fermentation (MLF)¹, the decarboxylation of L-malic acid into L-lactic acid, is performed by lactic acid bacteria (LAB). MLF has a deacidifying effect that may compromise freshness or microbiological stability in wines² and can be inhibited by fumaric acid [E297] (FA). In wine, can be added at a maximum allowable dose of 0.6 g/L³. Its inhibition with FA is being studied as an alternative strategy to minimize added doses of SO₂⁴. In addition, wine yeasts are capable of metabolizing and storing small amounts of FA and during alcoholic fermentation (AF).

Use of the stics crop model as a tool to inform vineyard zonages

STICS est un modèle de culture développé à l’INRA (France) depuis 1996. Il simule les bilans de carbone, d’eau et d’azote dans le système culture-sol, piloté par des données climatiques journaliéres. Il calcule à la fois des variables agricoles (rendement en quantité et qualité) et environnementales (pertes en eau et en azote). Une des originalités de STICS est son adaptabilité à de nombreuses cultures (herbacées, ligneuses, annuelles, pérennes) rendue possible par le choix de paramètres génériques et d’options de formalismes. Le travail présenté traite, dans un premier temps, des spécificités de STICS pour la vigne en terme de bilan trophique, de fonctionnement énergétique et hydrique et d’estimation des teneurs en sucre en en eau du raisin. Nous montrons ensuite diverses sorties du modèle qui permettent de caractériser des terroirs du vignoble des Côtes du Rhône.
