Electronic Tongue Tastes Wine Variety, Vintage


ScienceDaily (12 Aug 2008) — You don't need a wine expert to identify a '74 Pinot Noir from Burgundy. A handheld "electronic tongue" devised by European scientists will tell you the grape variety and vintage at the press of a button.

Designed for quality control in the field, the device is made up of six sensors which detect substances characteristic of a certain wine variety. Components such as acid, sugar and alcohol can be measured by this detection, and from these parameters it can determine the age and variety of the wine.
