By Juan Moreno

Enological Chemistry is written for the pro enologist tasked with discovering definitely the right stability of compounds to create or enhance wine items. similar titles lack the correct concentration for this viewers, based on reviewers, failing both to be as entire related to chemistry, to incorporate chemistry as a part of the wider technological know-how of wine, or focusing on a much less clinical viewers and together with social and ancient info in some way pertinent to the knowledge of the position of chemistry in winning wine production.

The themes within the e-book were sequenced identically with the stairs of the winemaking method. therefore, the ebook describes the main salient compounds fascinated about each one vinification strategy, their homes and their stability; additionally, theoretical wisdom is matched with its functional software. the first objective is to let the reader to spot the explicit compounds in the back of enological homes and strategies, their chemical stability and their effect at the analytical and sensory caliber of wine, in addition to the actual, chemical and microbiological elements that impact their evolution through the winemaking process.

  • Organized in accordance with the winemaking procedure, guiding reader basically to program of knowledge
  • Describes the main salient compounds eager about each one step permitting readers to spot the categorical compounds at the back of homes and strategies and successfully paintings with them
  • Provides either theoretical wisdom and functional software supplying a robust place to begin for extra learn and development

This acid is the building block for metabolites that are essential in wine, such as: • • • • • • • • 2,3-butanediol (CH3-CHOH-CHOH-CH3) Succinic acid (COOH-CH2-CH2-COOH) Acetic acid (CH3-COOH) Acetoin (acetyl-methylcarbinol) (CH3-CO-CHOH-CH3) Diacetyl (CH3-CO-CO-CH3) Butyric acid (CH3-CH2-CH2-COOH) Lactic acid (CH3-CHOH-COOH) Acetoacetic acid (CH3-CO-CH2-COOH) and acetone (CH3-CO-CH3) 2. ALCOHOLIC FERMENTATION AND THE COMPOSITION OF WINE The ethanol produced by the fermentation of sugars in the must (glucose and fructose) causes both qualitative and quantitative changes in its chemical composition.

INTRODUCTION Substances that contribute to the aroma of musts fall into two main categories: those that are already present in the grapes (terpenes, carotenoids, and pyrazines) and those that are generated during must extraction and as a result of the treatments applied prior to fermentation. The latter group encompasses C6-alcohols and aldehydes, which are generated through the activity of lipoxygenase enzymes present in the grapes. These enzymes come into contact with linoleic and linolenic (C18:2 and C18:3) fatty acids during pressing or crushing and cause them to break down.

Glycerol is the most abundant of these by-products, and it is also the third most abundant component of wine, after water and ethanol. ENOLOGICAL CHEMISTRY 43 1. 1. Glyceropyruvic Fermentation Glyceropyruvic fermentation produces glycerol and pyruvic acid from glucose. In this process, glycerol is formed by the reduction reaction required in order to subsequently oxidize pyruvic acid to ethanol, except that here pyruvic acid is converted to other metabolites. C6 H12 O6 / CH2 OH-CHOH-CH2 OH þ CH3 -CO-COOH 180 g/mol Glucose 92 g/mol Glycerol 88 g/mol Pyruvic acid Glycerol, which actually competes with the acetaldehyde formed during alcoholic fermentation as a hydrogen acceptor, is produced by the reduction of dihydroxyacetone3-phosphate as pyruvic acid levels accumulate.
