Comparative study of 13C composition in ethanol and bulk dry wine using isotope ratio monitoring by mass spectrometry and by nuclear magnetic resonance as an indicator of vine water status.

The potential of wine13C isotope composition (δ13C) is presented to assess vine water status duringgrape ripening. Measurements of δ13C have been performed on a set of 32 authentic wines and their ethanol recovered after distillation. The data, obtained by isotope ratio monitoring by mass spectrometry coupled to an elemental analyser (irm-EA/MS), show a high correlation between δ13C of the bulk wine and its ethanol, indicating that the distillation step is not necessary when the wine has not been submitted to any oenological treatment. Therefore, the ethanol/wine δ13C correlation can be

Microencapsulation of Anthocyanins with Different Wall Materials and Its Application in Active Biodegradable Films

AbstractWine grape pomace, a by-product known for its high polyphenolic content, was used as a source of anthocyanins in the acquisition of active biodegradable films, which were produced with anthocyanins encapsulated with different wall materials endowed with film-forming properties. Gum arabic and maltodextrin were used in different proportions during the encapsulation process, and the anthocyanin contents of the powders obtained were quantified by high-efficiency liquid chromatography (HPLC), resulting in up to 91.5 % retention. The antioxidant properties, solubility, and color stability of powders were analyzed. Because the microcapsules were added

Relationship between Menthiafolic Acid and Wine Lactone in Wine.

Menthiafolic acid (6-hydroxy-2,6-dimethylocta-2,7-dienoic acid, 2a) was quantified by GC-MS in 28 white wines, 4 Shiraz wines, and for the first time in 6 white grape juice samples. Menthiafolic acid was detected in all but one of the wine samples at concentrations ranging from 26 to 342 µg/L and in the juice samples from 16 to 236 µg/L. Various model fermentation experiments showed that some menthiafolic acid in wine could be generated from the grape-derived menthiafolic acid glucose ester (2b) during alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. Samples containing high concentrations of menthiafolic
