PhD Student Ana Hranilovic has published her work on the yeast Lachancea thermotolerans (formerly Kluyveromyces thermotolerans) as a species with remarkable, yet underexplored, biotechnological potential. To gain an insight into L. thermotolerans population diversity and structure, 172 isolates sourced from diverse habitats worldwide were analysed using a set of 14 microsatellite markers. The resultant clustering revealed that the evolution of L. thermotolerans has been […]
Phd Student Rocco Longo and dr Leigh Schmidtke have produced two technical notes on their work on the production of lower alcohol wines. The notes can be found here.
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 […]
ARC TC-IWP PhD student Rocco Longo from Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga presents his work on the use of blending for the production of low alcohol wines in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture. Lower alcohol wines are suffering from a poor reputation among consumers, which is in part due to their […]
Following the publication of two papers by the training centre on the topic of ethanol evaporation and winemaking supplements the ARC-TC has also published a set of technical notes. They can be found here.
David Wollan and Dr Duc-Truc Pham have published their work on ethanol evaporation from wine glasses and the impact this has on sensory attributes of wine. Research findings have important implications for sensory analysis of wines, within specific informal sensory trials and particularly wine shows. Is it time for us to change the sensory set-up? You can find the […]
