OENOLOGY 3520WT - Advances in Wine Science III

Waite Campus - Semester 2 - 2015

Current research and advanced practices in viticulture and oenology will be examined through lecture/tutorial-based discussion. Viticultural topics will include water relations, water and nutrient use efficiency, climate change, salinity, organic and biodynamic practices and genetic advancement. From an oenological context, emphasis will be placed on grape and wine phenolics and flavour compounds; methods of analysis in wine science; yeast biochemistry, ethanol toxicity, wine stability, yeast aroma compounds; malolactic fermentation. The course will consist of lectures, lab-based practicals, topic debates and a final sensory skill presentation based on sensory skills developed over the course of the Bachelor of Viticulture and Oenology Program.
