In contrast to the most worldwide used grape varieties, wine production in Brazil is mainly devoted to the elaboration of table wines from American grapes and hybrids. These grapes show initial disadvantages such as low soluble solids content in their optimal stage of ripening and poor color quality. Based on this, the Brazilian Agency EMBRAPA Grape and(More)
BACKGROUND Density and viscosity are properties that exert great influence on the body of wines. The present work aimed to evaluate the influence of the alcoholic content, dry extract, and reducing sugar content on density and viscosity of commercial dry red wines at different temperatures. The rheological assays were carried out on a controlled stress(More)
Brazilian wine production is dominated by the use of American grape cultivars (Vitis labrusca L.) and their hybrids. In this context, this study analyzed the phenolic composition and sensory profile of Bordô and BRS Carmem red wines elaborated from traditional and two alternative winemaking technologies: grape pre-drying and submerged cap of chaptalized(More)
The effect of the temperature and concentration on rheological behavior of Cabernet Sauvignon juice concentrates was assessed using a rheometer over a wide range of temperature (1-66°C) and concentrations (13.6-45.0Brix) at shear rates of 0.84-212.1 1/s. The Ostwald-De Waele was the best rheological model fitted the data (R2=0.99957 and relative(More)
