Effect of extended maceration and ethanol concentration on the extraction and evolution of phenolics, colour components and sensory attributes of Merlot wines
Background and Aims: Anecdotal evidence suggests that there may be a synergistic effect of ethanol (EtOH) and prolonged skin contact on the extraction of certain phenolics that may negatively impactExpand
Influence of Fruit Maturity, Maceration Length, and Ethanol Amount on Chemical and Sensory Properties of Merlot Wines
Selected winemaking conditions were applied to fruit with ~20.3 and ~24.9 Brix over two seasons. Merlot grapes were harvested 33 (2011) and 34 (2012) days apart. At each harvest, half of the must wasExpand
Impact of extended maceration and regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) in Cabernet Sauvignon wines: characterization of proanthocyanidin distribution, anthocyanin extraction, and chromatic properties.
TLDR
The impact of extended maceration (EM) was studied in Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from a vineyard subjected to four regulated deficit irrigation treatments and led to anthocyanin losses and increased PA extraction during Maceration, with ~73% of seed-derived PAs. Expand
Sensory Impact of Extended Maceration and Regulated Deficit Irrigation on Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon Wines
Irrigation practices such as regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) and winemaking practices such as extended maceration have been experimentally evaluated from a chemical perspective but their impactsExpand
Comparison of Multivariate Regression Methods for the Analysis of Phenolics in Wine Made from Two Vitis vinifera Cultivars
The quantification of key phenolic classes during different stages of red wine production has important industrial applications. Decisions of this nature require greater speed and economy thanExpand
Model Optimization for the Prediction of Red Wine Phenolic Compounds Using Ultraviolet–Visible Spectra
TLDR
Red wine phenolic prediction by the models built in this work can be realistically achieved, although periodic model re-calibration and expansion from data obtained using known phenolic assays is recommended to maintain model accuracy. Expand
The effect of Candidatus Phytoplasma pruni infection on sweet cherry fruit.
TLDR
This study presents the first in-depth assessment of X-disease symptoms and biochemical content of fruit from commercially grown sweet cherry cultivars known to be infected with Ca. Expand
