Foss Analytical have launched OenoFoss 2, an instrument that allows winemakers to analyse their wines at the touch of a button in just over a minute – including, for the first time, sparkling wine.
The new model provides a faster and easier-to-use solution than the original OenoFoss which was launched in 2008, according to Søren Thiis Heide, program director of wine & beer in Foss’s R&D department, with software that is more “intuitive”.
“The old OenoFoss is also a fantastic instrument, but it uses a method that’s more dependent on the user and the skills of the user,” he explained. “With the new device, the winemaker can focus on making wine and the machine will provide the data. It gives you a super performance every time without the need for a trained operator.”
“It is also much easier to get started with it.”
The “game-changing gadget” can also cope with the complexities of sparkling wine as well as still wine and must, giving winemakers the information they need to make informed decisions on when to pick, control fermentation and when to bottle their wine in just over a minute.
