Wine authentication can help to avoid any uncertainty around wine labelling according to origin, variety or vintage. My project focuses on understanding the unique characters that are inherent in Australian wine regions, as a measure of protection of wines and wine brands in the global market for aid in the mitigation of wine fraud, leads to increased consumer confidence.

As a rapid, straightforward, selective, and sensitive method that yields a molecular fingerprint of wine, fluorescence spectroscopy was identified as a promising method to investigate wine authentication. Several original research studies were subsequently performed with the aim of understanding the potential of applying fluorescence spectroscopy in combination with multivariate data analysis for wine authentication.
