Anthocyanins

Determination of anthocyanins by SO2 discolouration method (Ribérau-Gayon and Stonestreet, 1965) gives the content of free anthocyanins.

Anthocyanins  analysis by HPLC gives the nine main anthocyanin's content:

Group 1 : « Non acylated Anthocyanins-3-glucosides »:

  • Delphinidol-3-glucoside
  • Cyanidol-3-glucoside
  • Petunidol-3-glucoside
  • Peonidol-3-glucoside
  • Malvidol-3-glucoside

Group 2 : « Acetylated Anthocyanins-3-glucosides »:

  • Peonidol-3-acetylglucoside
  • Malvidol-3-acetylglucoside

Group 3 : « Coumarylated Anthocyanes-3-glucosides »:

  • Peonidol-3-coumarylglucoside
  • Malvidol-3-coumarylglucoside

For a better characterization of phenolic content of wines, we recommend tannins determination, measurement of Glories index and average degree of polymerization (mDP) (see our Glories, mDP and enological analysis folders).
