The monoterpenes are the most important contribution to the olfactory profile of wine due to their low odour threshold. These and other aroma-active substances do not generally exist in a free form but are conjugated to mono- or disaccharides, thereby forming water-soluble and odourless complexes. Enzymes that cleave the sugar moieties from the precursors can, therefore, have a major impact on the sensory profile of wine, as they release the volatile aroma compounds. For this reason, we… CONTINUE READING
