A method for reducing the concentration of smoke taint compounds in smoke tainted fermented fruit juice (e.g., wine) is described. The method can include removing volatile flavor and/or aroma compounds from the affected fermented fruit juice and then removing smoke taint compounds by contacting the affected fermented fruit juice with a resin that absorbs smoke taint compounds. After removal of the smoke taint compounds, the previously removed volatile flavor and/or aroma compounds are recombined with the remaining fermented fruit juice. Also described is an apparatus for reducing the concentration of smoke taint compounds in smoke tainted fermented fruit juice, as well as the reduced smoke taint fermented fruit juices themselves.
