Participants wanted for Cabernet Sauvignon wine tasting

School of Agriculture, Food and Wine researchers are looking for wine consumers to take part in a wine consumer preference sensory study of Cabernet Sauvignon wines.

This study is part of an ARC Training Centre for Innovative Wine Production research project that is investigating the sensory attributes driving the typicity of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon wines. 

The knowledge gained from this project could assist the wine industry in Coonawarra to increase the value of their regional brand of Cabernet Sauvignon and give insights into viticulture and winemaking practices that can be used to manipulate sensory profiles and guarantee the expression of regional characters.

The tastings are being conducted at the University of Adelaide’s Waite campus by Masters of Philosophy student Lira Souza GonzagaAssociate Professor David JefferyDr Dimitra Capone and Associate Professor Susan Bastian.
