Increasing wine flavour with glycoside additions

Date: Tuesday, 20 November 2018

Time: 11.30 am – 12.15 am Australian Central Daylight Time (Adelaide, GMT+10:30)

Summary: Grape-derived glycosides are an important source of floral and fruity flavour in many wines. High concentrations of glycosides can be found in white grape marc, especially from floral varieties. For the first time, glycosides were extracted from Gewürztraminer marc and added to white juices prior to fermentation, and to wines at bottling. Chemical and sensory effects were measured, and results suggest that grape marc has potential as a new source of flavour for white wines.
