Enological potential of the plot

The dynamics of the sugar loading in the berry (duration, speed and GAP to stop) allow for the definition of the potential of the plot, that is to say the organoleptic benefits available to the grape and with what intensity.

  • High: you will be able to develop the profile you want, with good concentration and without going through the neutral phase.
  • Medium: you can create the profile you want, paying attention not to harvest in the neutral phase.
  • Low: most fresh fruit with little concentration, and if there is water stress, be satisfied with letting it overripe to have sweetness.
  • Slow ripening: they remain in diluted vegetable, and if there is strong water stress or that, only cooked fruit and dryness.

This information is a great help when defining winemaking paths and decision-making in winemaking.

The monitoring of the active sugar load in the berry allows you to distinguish if the grape follows an efficient maturatioin process or if it is blocked and concentrated simply due to dehydration We can also put a date on the different phases corresponding to different aromatic profiles. And we can find the perfect fit between grape profile and wine profile.
