Definitions for "Anthocyanins"
Probably the most abundant flavonoid. See "Flavonoids."
they are the red pigment in the grape, and their production is stimulated by light hitting the clusters.
these are the pigments found in the grape skins that are responsible for the colour of red wines. To get this colour into red wine is one of the most important stage of red winemaking. Anthocyanins in white wines tend to add flavour rather than colour.
