    The antioxidants sulfur dioxide (50 ppm) and ascorbic acid (100 ppm) were added to grapes soon after harvest at crushing. The chemical composition and sensory profile of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay wines were examined, made from grapes collected at three different sites for each variety. With good antioxidant protection of the juices, reflected in low absorbances at 420 nm, remarkable increases in the polyfunctional mercaptans, 3-mercaptohexanol (3MH) and its acetate ester (3MHA), were seen in the wines. Moreover, high levels of these compounds were produced in the Pinot Gris and Chardonnay wines, equally high as with Sauvignon Blanc. The Pinot Gris wines maintained varietal characteristics in sensory profiles, even with high levels of polyfunctional mercaptans. When elemental sulfur was included with the grapes at crushing, extra increases in polyfunctional mercaptans were observed. However, this led to the production of unwanted reductive aroma compounds in some wines. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
