By Juan Moreno

Enological Chemistry is written for the pro enologist tasked with discovering the precise stability of compounds to create or increase wine items. comparable titles lack the ideal concentration for this viewers, based on reviewers, failing both to be as finished relating to chemistry, to incorporate chemistry as a part of the wider technology of wine, or focusing on a much less clinical viewers and together with social and ancient info in a roundabout way pertinent to the knowledge of the function of chemistry in winning wine production.

The themes within the booklet were sequenced identically with the stairs of the winemaking strategy. hence, the e-book describes the main salient compounds occupied with every one vinification technique, their houses and their stability; additionally, theoretical wisdom is matched with its useful program. the first objective is to let the reader to spot the categorical compounds at the back of enological houses and procedures, their chemical stability and their impression at the analytical and sensory caliber of wine, in addition to the actual, chemical and microbiological components that have an effect on their evolution through the winemaking process.

  • Organized in line with the winemaking strategy, guiding reader sincerely to software of knowledge
  • Describes the main salient compounds all in favour of each one step permitting readers to spot the explicit compounds at the back of houses and methods and successfully paintings with them
  • Provides either theoretical wisdom and sensible program supplying a powerful place to begin for extra learn and development

Example text

The use of these materials is permitted in some regions. The levels of other metal cations such as iron and copper can also increase due to contact between the must or wine and iron, stainless steel, or bronze. These cations can cloud the wine, causing what is known as metal haze. They are also involved in numerous redox reactions. Other key mineral substances found in wine, apart from the organic anions associated with the main acids in wines, are inorganic acid anions. The most relevant of these are phosphates and sulfates.

Distribution of Free and Bound Terpenes in the Grape Current consumer preference for wines with a high aromatic potential means that winemakers may want to produce wines with a high concentration of terpene compounds. This can be achieved through the use of specific vinification techniques. However, approaches must be based on an understanding of terpene biosynthesis and, in particular, the distribution of these compounds within the grapes. ENOLOGICAL CHEMISTRY 29 2. TERPENES Free Terpenes There is an unequal distribution of certain free monoterpenes in the skin, pulp, and must of Muscat grapes.

5. Nitrogen Compounds The amino acid content of must varies greatly from one year to the next, even within the same wine region and for the same grape variety. Nitrogenous fertilizers and climate both have a significant influence on the qualitative and quantitative composition of the amino acids in must. Amino acid usage by yeasts during fermentation largely depends on the composition of the must. Nitrogen in the form of ammonium is the most rapidly assimilable source of nitrogen for yeast, and its levels must exceed 50 mg/L for fermentation to proceed smoothly.
