Melbourne: A biochemist-turned- winemaker in Queensland, Australia has claimed to have created what drinkers had only dreamed of - wine that is beneficial to your health.Greg Jardine, founder of Mt Nebo-based company Dr Red Nutraceuticals, filed a patent for Modified Polyphenol Technology in Wines late last year and said the creation would "finally give wine a real medicinal edge," the Courier Mail reported.The process involved ageing red wine for a certain period of time, which enhanced the number of antioxidants within it, made them fat-soluble, rather than water-soluble, and easier to absorb into the bloodstream.Some studies have shown antioxidants are effective at fighting a multitude of different diseases.Jardine said that he had been working on the process for 10 years but had only recently discovered a way to retain the taste while enhancing antioxidants."Wine has got massive amounts of antioxidants but they are quite tannic so if you put more in people would not drink it because of the taste," he told the Sunday Mail."What we discovered was if we allowed them to age and stop it at the right point of time the tannic taste goes and we make it taste good," he said.
