Creation of an expert sensory panel to define wine profiles and ensure consistency
To ensure product consistency and reproducibility, Kendall-Jackson Vineyards and Winery set out to define its wine profiles and implement sensory control procedures. For this project, the Group called upon Vivelys to support and train the internal group of tasters responsible for defining and evaluating the company’s wines.
- Siryel® consists of a pen equipped with a camera that saves tasting notes .
- This data is transcribed by an online software program in the form of sets, mapping, sensory profiles with descriptors, significance indices, etc.
- Siryel® makes it possible to track wine profiles and consistency, panel performance, etc.
Sensory evaluation consulting
Vivelys draws on its sensory evaluation and oenology expertise to support oenologists in the creation of specific wine profiles.
For example, this know-how enables Vivelys to identify the effect of new winemaking processes or new suppliers, and also assess the consistency and reproducibility of a wine or a brand based on the markets.
