Peppery aromas and flavours in Shiraz could open doors to export markets

Rotundone, a compound that occurs in some Shiraz grapes giving it a peppery aroma and flavour, is being tracked by a researcher from the University of Melbourne with the aim of providing ­information to Asian ­consumers who want to buy wine featuring the ­component.
