Compared to traditional laboratory methods, spectroscopic techniques (e.g., near infrared, hyperspectral imaging) provide analysts with an innovative and improved understanding of complex issues by determining several chemical compounds and metabolites at once, allowing for the collection of the sample “fingerprint”. These techniques have the potential to deliver high-throughput options for the analysis of the chemical composition of grapes in the laboratory, the vineyard and before or during harvest, to provide better insights of the chemistry, nutrition and physiology of grapes. Faster computers, the development of software and portable easy to use spectrophotometers and data analytical methods allow for the development of innovative applications of these techniques for the analyses of grape composition.
