CORK AND WINE
Cork and wine were really made for one another.
Any time you share a glass of wine or when you open a bottle, there is a reunion ritual, sealed by a cork in which time and confidence have been invested and that crowns the perfect communion between the sophisticated creation of man and the natural gift of the cork oak.
The excellent physical and chemical properties of cork stoppers not only help store the wine, but they also let it continue to develop inside the bottle.
Cork stoppers bring out the character and nobility of each wine, improving their perception as a high-quality product.
THE RIGHT CORK FOR EVERY WINE
We always accompany our customers to provide support and advice.
The choice of the right cork for each wine requires thorough, exhaustive analysis, consideration and extensive knowledge.
We have a highly specialised team to ensure that all wines get the right corks and so every customer is satisfied and comfortable with their choices.
The first factor to consider when choosing a cork stopper is the KIND OF WINE that is going to be bottled.
But there are other factors that also have to be taken into account:
1. Type of wine: Red, white, rosé, sparkling.
2. Type of bottling: hot or cold.
3. How long the wine is likely to stay in the bottle.
4. The market the wine is going to.
5. Transport and storage conditions for the wine.
6. The CO2 in the wine
Natural Cork Stoppers
100% Natural and obtained from the best Portuguese Cork available.
We use the latest innovations in the sterilization, cleaning and refinement on all-natural cork stoppers. This type of stopper helps age wine while protecting its flavour and texture.
Colmated Cork Stoppers
Colmated corks are natural cork stoppers obtained through a process used to improve performance levels on medium grade cork. Sometimes the cork bark pores are sealed with a mixture of food resin, glue and cork dust. This mixture makes the stopper visually appealing and helps seal the bottle. These corks are used for wines that are called “Fast consumption wines”.
Like the colmated cork stoppers, twin top cork stoppers are not made for long bottle ageing. Twin tops are usually used for fruity wines and wines not used with long bottle ageing. They are usually used for high-speed bottling lines and even on the same lines as natural cork stoppers.
Champagne stoppers are designed for sparkling beverages to keep the excess air out and to keep the gases in the drink.
The body of the cork is made of granules with a binder, and the bottom of the cork has two or three cork discs sealed to the bottom of the cork.
These stoppers are made with a granulated cork of a specific quality with food-safe glue. Micro corks are used for “fast consumption wines” like colmated corks are. The only difference is these stoppers are used for wines with more complexity, such as those made in unique barrels and with added flavours.
Agglomerated corks are now one of the most used corks because of how cheap they are to make and their shelf life. These corks are made of granules and additives such as plastic binders. These are made specifically for wines that are to be consumed within six months. These corks are also one of the cheapest to make, because of its durable structure, these stoppers can be used for up to three years
