Methylanthranilate (''foxy taint'') concentrations of hybrid and Vitis vinifera wines

A. Rapp, G. G. Versini
Research Note Methylanthranilate, contributing to the typical hybrid/foxy taint of wines from American hybrids and wild vines, was also detected in white wines from Vitis vinifera varieties in concentrations up to 0.3 µg/l. In wines from newly bred fungus resistant cultivars methylanthranilate contents were found to be at the same low level, not exceeding the perception threshold of ca. 300 µg/l and therefore not negatively affecting the wine quality.
