Former winemaker and now researcher, Dr Rocco Longo, is taking the guesswork out of creating beautiful sparkling wines at the University of Tasmania.
Rocco is building an instrument that will attach to a grape press and tell winemakers when itís time to stop squeezing the juice from the grapes.
The system measures the amount of phenolic acids from the seeds and skin of the grape. "The more you press, the more phenolics you are able to extract" Rocco said.
