ETS Laboratories now offers glutathione analysis for berries, juice or wine. The company says the new test is in response to growing demand for white and rosé wines that exhibit “fresh, fruity or floral” characteristics. Such qualities can be lost through oxidation and glutathione is a naturally-occuring tri-peptide that’s a powerful antioxident. A low level of glutathione in grapes leads to lower levels in the juice and the finished wine will have poor aging potential. Glutathione levels can fluctuate during fermentation and can be affected by sulfur dioxide, phenolic compounds, ascorbic acid and copper. Details:

Multiple applications may be required to ensure birds are deterred from all parts of the vineyard. Details:
