Jet Technologies has announced its collaboration with Australian organic wine producer, Tamburlaine Organic Wines, to implement a range of innovative and eco-friendly wine packaging and technology solutions.
To enhance the sustainability of its packaging and maintain the quality of its bottled wine, Jet Technologies is currently working with Tamburlaine to appraise PVDC-free wine screwcaps and oxygen analysers, such as the NomaSense portable analyser, into production.
“Organic winemaking is about constructing a more sustainable future for the industry. We have been tracking our carbon footprint for almost two decades, and we are continuously looking for new ways of using less while continuing to grow as a business. Through this vision, we look to our partners like Jet Technologies, who share the same focus on sustainability as we do,” Tamburlaine managing director Mark Davidson said.
“Through this collaboration, we are currently in the process of evaluating PVDC-free screwcaps from Jet Technologies across our entire production line. The use of the NomaSense technology has the ability to fine-tune the technical accuracy required to perfect our bottling processes.”
Established in 1966 as a boutique wine producer in NSW’s Hunter Valley region, Tamburlaine’s core focus is to produce organic wine to Australian consumers in the most environmental way possible, with sustainable growing and farming, winemaking, and energy conservation key parts of the process.
Davidson added that oxygen and gas play a key role in creating the sensory profile of wine, including the aromas, structure and colour.
As such, the NomaSense analyser allows winemakers to measure and control oxygen and gas levels from the beginning of the winemaking process, right through to customer consumption. These non-destructive measurements, taken from within the cellar, provide winemakers with a superiorly accurate sample of a wine’s oxygen and gas level in real-time.
“There is often a misconception that organic wine production is somehow unrelated to modern technological thinking. However, it is on the contrary – technical and technological improvements to wine production allow winemakers to shrug off poor aspects of past thinking. Jet Technologies is an important supplier in this process, as they are always looking to introduce new sustainable technologies into our industry,” Davidson added.
Jet Technologies general manager Daniel Malki said Tamburlaine’s focus on sustainability is very admirable, and that the company is very pleased to have had the opportunity to share its own offerings for eco-friendly wine technology to further progress the industry into more sustainable practices.
“It is also vital that Australian winemakers have the right strategies and tools in place to deliver their customers with the highest quality wine possible. This is certainly the case for Tamburlaine, who have adopted these new solutions to provide wine lovers with an outstanding product in a highly sustainable way,” Malki said.
