Lap up the wine

In the ever-growing world of automation, a group of Spanish scientists has created an electronic tongue that can identify different types of cava wines — and perhaps be a sommelier.

So far, the device can identify three types of cavas based on their sugar content: Brut, Brut Nature and Medium Dry. It could also be useful in detecting defects during the wine-making process. The project is the result of years of research out of the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona.
