Project description
Current industry funded projects conducted at the ARC Infruitec-Nietvoorbij, generate a large number of experimental wines, especially those derived from non-Saccharomyces yeasts. These wines are currently only subjected to superficial chemical analysis. The chemical data emanating from the superficial analysis of the wines limits the conclusions that can be made regarding the overall quality of the wine. Sensory evaluation shows that differences in aroma and mouth-feel cannot be explained by volatile compounds currently being measured and indicates that other chemical compounds are involved.

The aim of this project is, therefore, the elucidation of additional chemical compounds in non-Saccharomyces produced wines to enable more effective protocols and production practices to be implemented. This will result in increased wine quality which will keep the South African wine industry at the forefront and allow it to compete in the global wine market.
