To describe an Australian Shiraz in terms of "liquorice", "plum" and "blackpepper" still bemuses many winelovers. Some interpret it to mean that these substances have actually been infused into the wine, in much the same way as one might infuse botanicals in neutral spirit to create Gin. What to the layman has long appeared to be a rather fanciful use of descriptors, has in fact its basis in science.
Wine actually contains volatile organic compounds which correspond to those found in fruits, vegetables and other elements of our environment. These are either in the grapes themselves or seep into the finished juice. Several of the more commonly observed compounds have been identified by Dr Leigh Francis, sensory research manager at the Australian Wine Research Institute. For example, the distinctive black pepper character notable in Summerfield's Shiraz is generally attributed to 'rotundone', also common to black pepper itself.
