ARC TW-IWP dr Renata Ristic has published her work on the impact of bottle aging on smoke tainted wine. The study aimed to investigate the stability of smoke taint in bottled wine, by determining changes in chemical composition and sensory properties of smoke affected wine after 5 or 6 years in bottle. Changes were seen in volatile phenol levels for both smoke affected as well as control wines, but glycoconjugate precursors showed relative stability.
Bottle aging had several effects on the sensory properties of the wine, mostly depending on the grape variety.
