The volatile flavour constituents of mandarin wine obtained from clementine (Citrus reticula Blanco) were analysed by headspace solid-phase microextraction (HS-SPME) and immersion solid-phase microextraction (Im-SPME) coupled to GC-MS. A total of 19 volatiles, including eight esters, four higher alcohols, three monoterpenes and four furfural compounds, were identified in wine. The HS-SPME technique showed a higher sensitivity than Im-SPME. The major constituents found in wine volatiles using HS-SPME were ethyl octanoate, ethyl decanoate, isoamyl alcohol, ethyl hexanoate and isoamyl acetate, respectively.
