In a recent Golden Gate Polymer Forum event sponsored by RheoSense, we measured the viscosity of a number of wines that were being tasted by the audience. In this application note, we demonstrate a good correlation between alcohol content and viscosity measurements for wines with similar sugar content using the portable, small sample viscometer: microVISC™.
Additionally, viscosity can be related to mouth feel and other interested phenomena such as Wine Tears , which are a mayor component in the enjoyable degustation of this unique beverage.
RheoSense viscometers present a number of advantages including:
