INDIVIDUAL PANELS

  1. 1
    HARVEST AND VINIFICATIONS

    These tests will help you monitor grape maturity efficiently during harvest

    Panel  #1 : Musts

    oBrix , Glucose-Fructose, Potential Alcohol Content, Total Acidity (TA), pH, L-Malic Acid, Tartaric acid, Mass Density, Potassium, YAN, NOPA

    Code: MIF                      Required amount: 250 ml of juice                  Turnaround: 1 day

    These analyses will provide a good monitoring of key parameters after harvest.

     

    Panel #2 : Young wines

    Glucose-Fructose, Acquired Alcoholic Strength, Total Acidity (TA), Volatile Acidity, pH, L-Malic Acid, Tartaric Acid, L-Lactic Acid, Mass Density, NOPA

    Code : YW               Required amount: 250 ml                                  Turnaround : 2 days

    These tests will help you set a strong base for monitoring fermentations.  Several of these analyses can identify the cause of slow or stuck fermentation in order to take corrective actions

    Panel 3# Quality assurance

    pH, Total Acidity (TA), Volatile Acidity, Glucose-Fructose, Acquired Alcoholic Strength

    Code : QA                               Required amount : 250 ml                                         Turnaround : 2 days

    Panel #4 Complete analysis

    Glucose-Fructose, Acquired Alcoholic Strength, Total Acidity (TA), Volatile Acidity, pH, L-Malic Acid, L-Lactic Acid, Tartaric Acid, Mass Density, Free SO2, Total SO2.

    Code : CA                                 Required volume : 250 ml                                        Turnaround : 2 days

    Panel #5 Malolactic monitoring

    Glucose-Fructose, Total Acidity (TA), Volatile Acidity, pH, L-Malic Acid, L-Lactic Acid

    Code : CT_Malo                       Required volume  : 250 ml                                         Turnaround : 2 days

    We suggests monitoring these parameters to evaluate the stability of your product during and after ageing.

    Panel #6 Racking
