he took note after the mendocino complex fire of 2018 and began studying better techniques to identify which grapes contained so-called smoke taint. he said it can sometime remain hidden when smoky compounds bind with sugar molecules in the grapes. but they can be released later by enzymes during the fermentation process or even when the compound comes into contact with saliva of a drinker. >> the enzymes in your saliva and bacteria in your mouth will cleave this context and free the phenols. spencer: to identify the process and the taint he expended work done in australia where wildfires have also devastated grape products. the key is to test for smoke derived compounds can be used as biomarkers. modern techniques like spectrometry can identify the compounds even if they are not producing the full taste in their current form.
9:46 am
>> that was a technology we put on the table. we separated compounds and it is these complexes. you measure them by using -- you visualize them using spectrometry. spencer: the hope is more accurate testing can save winemakers around the world billions of dollars a year by identifying just the affected grapes and saving the rest. >> we make better decisions and hopefully salvage more. spencer: all in an industry with tight profit margins and discriminating consumers. spencer christian, abc7 news. liz: fascinating. let's get a check on the weather. speaking of wildfires, we are entering spring and always get concerned. lisa: of course. only six inches of rain since october in san jose, 16 in oakland and that sounds like a lot but it was just twomohec vee . lioppler 7 picking up on the
