Wine

Wine-Profiling Module of the NMR FoodScreener

An innovative solution for the analysis of wine using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has been developed by Bruker with the help of experts in the field.

The principle of the method relies on the acquisition of the spectroscopic fingerprint specific to each individual sample. These profiles are compared to a large database of authentic wine samples using a multivariate statistical approach. Wine-Profiling by NMR combines quality control and testing of safety issues and authenticity in an unique way.

Features:

  • Easy, cost-effective, push-button NMR solution for comprehensive wine screening based on the FoodScreener platform
  • Automatic generation of analysis reports
  • Reliable screening method providing targeted and non-targeted analyses from a single measurement
  • Quantification of 56 parameters
  • 19,000 reference samples
  • Comparison of quantification values to official reference values and for all compounds to the concentration distribution of authentic samples, thus supporting interpretation of the results
  • Prediction of authenticity parameters such as grape variety, geographical origin and vintage by means of classification analyses
  • Non-targeted verification of sample conformity by comparison to authentic reference data by means of verification models

New features in release 3.1:

  • Verification of geographical origin by country for white wines (Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Spain) and for red wines (Chile)
  • Verification of special regions:  Bourgogne (red, white), Languedoc (red), Rhone (red) and Loire (red)
  • Verification of certain appellations: Chablis (France) and Valpolicella (Italy), and one new grape variety: Verdejo (Spain)
