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 than current bench or instrumental methodologies offer. Efforts to create rapid analysis have used models created from multivariate regression of easily obtained spectra (ultraviolet (UV)/visible or near infrared) and referenced phenolic measurements. For this experiment, reference measures of phenolics and UV… Expand

Phenolic profiling of grapes, fermenting samples and wines using UV-Visible spectroscopy with chemometrics
Abstract Phenolic compounds play and important role on colour, flavour and mouthfeel attributes of wines. The acquisition of information related to phenolic compounds during the winemaking process isExpand
Spectrophotometric Analysis of Phenolic Compounds in Grapes and Wines.
The modified Somers assay appears as a multistep, simple, and robust procedure that provides a good estimation of the state of the anthocyanins equilibria and the measurement of wine color using the CIELab space approach is suggested as the protocol of choice as it provides good insight into the wine's color properties.
