A number of criteria are taken into account when determining
the optimum harvest date. Based on the measurement of
technological maturity indicators (sugars, organic acids, pH) or
phenolic maturity indicators (anthocyanins), the ‘classic’ method is not
precise enough to target the right aromatic
The MaturOx index
When the berries’ sugar loading stops, this is an extra indicator that can be used to predict the aromatic profile of future wine because it precedes the onset of different aromatic sequences.
