This subject contains a 4 day Compulsory Residential School.
The four-day residential school is compulsory. Laboratory analyses will be conducted to develop skills in the quantitation of wine phenolic compounds. Students will practice spectroscopic analyses providing objective measures of wine colour, and contrast with the visual assessment of wine colour. Students will develop analytical chemistry skills whilst enhancing their understanding of general wine chemistry and wine stability. Laboratory work will be supplemented by tutorial sessions focussing on the fundamental chemical concepts underlying the phenolic reactions encountered in the laboratory class.
