The Pinot G Style Spectrum; a novel tool to communicate wine style to consumers
In a world-first, Australian producers of Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris wines now have access to a simple labelling device called the PinotG Style Spectrum, which tells consumers the ‘style’ of the wine in the bottle at point of sale or prior to opening. The Spectrum uses spectral ‘fingerprinting’ calibrated against sensory evaluation; a novel technology developed at the AWRI with potentially far-reaching implications for wine production, quality control and authentication.
