Effect of non-wine Saccharomyces yeasts and bottle ageing on the release and generation of aromas in semi-synthetic Tempranillo wines

Abstract

AIM: Explore the variability and contribution of non-wine Saccharomyces yeasts and bottle aging on the release and generation of aromas of semi-synthetic Tempranillo wines, together with an in-depth study of the capacity of these strains to provide good fermentative and oenological qualities.

METHODS: 6 Saccharomyces yeasts strains of different species and origins performed fermentations in semi-synthetic must containing polyphenolic and aroma precursor Tempranillo extract. The resulting wines were subjected to accelerated anoxic aging simulating bottle aging. The aroma compounds released during fermentation and those contained in young and aged wines and must were liquid-liquid extracted and analysed by Gas Chromatography-Olfactometry (GC-O), GC-FID (flame ionization detector) and GC-Mass Spectrometry.

RESULTS: Among the compounds volatilised during fermentation, one of varietal origin was tentatively detected, 4-methyl-4-mercaptopenta-2-one (4MMP). The natural yeasts likely to introduce positive aroma notes to young and aged Tempranillo wines were E1 (S. eubayanus), C3, C2 (S. cerevisiae), K3 (S. kudriavzevii) and U1 (S. uvarum) by the highest production of ethyl esters, lactones, β-ionone and terpenes related to floral and fruity aroma. After aging, β-damascenone, riesling acetal, vitispirane A/B, linanool oxide and massoia lactone were found, nerol was no longer detected and β-linalool was not affected. In addition, there was a modulating effect by the yeasts, increasing or decreasing certain compounds favoured by aging. Regarding this effect, C2 strain excelled due to the large increase in ethyl leucate compared to its young wine and the rest of the aged wines.

CONCLUSIONS: Most compounds were highly increased by aging while yeasts at species and strain level were able to modulate the varietal and fermentative aroma profile differentially in both young and aged semi-synthetic Tempranillo wines.

La Région Délimitée du Douro et le Vin de Porto — un terroir historique —

The viticulture of the Douro Delimited Region, one of the heirs of ancestral viticulture, traditionally empirical and of quality, while integrating modernity and contemporary tools, respects and has always present the principles on which it was developed.

Hierarchy of the role of climate, soil and cultivar in terroir effect can largely be explained by vine water status

Le terroir peut être défini comme un écosystème dans lequel la vigne interagit avec le climat et le sol et dont la résultante est le vin.

Politics meets terroir. The story of Prosecco – Are GI’s just a protectionist racket?

The recent Free Trade Agreement negotiations between Australia and the European Union have again put the issue of Geographical Indications (GIs) in the spotlight. Australia has long demonstrated its understanding of GIs and maintains a clear and rigorous GI protection system for wine. For many years, Australia’s wine sector was a strong advocate for GIs and a strong system to protect the

2-YEARS STUDY ON COMPARISON BETWEEN THE VOLATILE CHEMICAL PROFILE OF TWO DIFFERENT BLENDS FOR THE ENHANCEMENT OF “VALPOLICELLA SUPERIORE”

Valpolicella is a famous wine producing region in the province of Verona owing its fame above all to the production of two Protected Designation of Origins (PDOs) withered wines: Amarone and Recioto. In recent years, however, the wineries have been interested in the enhancement and qualitative increase of another PDO, Valpolicella Superiore. All the Valpolicella PDOs wines are produced with a unique grape blend, mainly Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and a range of other minor varieties.From 2019 Valpolicella product regulation has changed the grape proportion of the blend allowing new composition parameters of wines. For this reason, studying the volatile chemical profiles to support wine makers in the effort to produce high quality wines represents a field of great interest.
