The soluble solids content of grapes for wine is an important characteristic for the final quality of the product, since it determines the need or not of chaptalization to reach the minimum alcoholic strength required for the wine, which should be at least 10.
If the wine or must have higher sugar content, less sugar will be added at the chaptalization to favoring the fermentation and resulting in a flavor more characteristic of the used grape.
For the early harvest treatments, chaptalization with a sucrose concentrate (81[degrees] Brix) was used to adjust the sugar level in one of the lots (average Brix at harvest: 20.
Vinification methods, for example, chaptalization (the adding of sugar to must) is not allowed in any Italian DOC)
Chaptalization and Water dilution (sugar and water additions);
It also spelled out which winemaking practices were to be controlled, such as chaptalization, the introduction of additional sugars during fermentation.
CHAPTALIZATION The process of adding sugar to grape juice deficient in it, to make sure the resulting wine has sufficient alcohol.
The SNIF-NMR method can reveal whether chaptalization has taken place by identifying the plant source of the alcohol in the wine; it was adopted as the official method by the EC in 1989.
For these growers, a "vintage year" was a year when the sugar concentration reached an adequate value for winemaking at all, and chaptalization was not required.
chaptalization (shap-tuh-luh-ZAY-shuhn) Addition of sugar after fermentation.
Chaptalization is much less commonplace than it used to be, as the better vintners produce high-quality wines.
Elevated fermentation temperatures, the encouragement of an aerobic environment, excessive turbidity within the must, chaptalization and fermenting within pressure tanks all encourage the production of higher alcohol.
