A new device currently in development in Tasmania could provide greater accuracy and efficiency to winemakers when deciding at which point to stop pressing their grapes. Developed by researchers at the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture, the technique uses wavelengths to measure phenolic compounds in juice. While itís been designed for use in the production of sparkling wines, there could be potential for it to be applied to other wine types too. With a prototype about to be constructed, Hans Mick spoke to Dr Rocco Longo to learn more.
