FST Farm 2 Fork - Are Volatile Thiols the Only Cause of Tropical Fruit Aroma in White Wines?

There is substantial work in the literature relating tropical fruit aroma to volatile thiols (3-MH, 3-MHA, and 4-MMP).

These potent compounds can directly influence the aroma perception of white wines and are abundant in Sauvignon blanc, although more recent studies have found their presence in Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Muscat, and other grape varieties.

Many consumers enjoy tropical fruit aromas in white wine and therefore this quality is desired in many wines. To ensure this quality is achieved it is important to understand which compounds cause tropical fruit aroma and what processes may influence those compounds.
