3 - Wine Terms - Closures

1. Cork: Harvested from Cork trees which is 100% renewable with an extremely low carbon footprint (hand harvested and single die cut) and is the standard wine enclosure in most of the world.

2. Screw top: Typically made out of aluminum and vary in quality. The low end screw tops have visible threads and are suitable for short term storage. High end screw tops will outperform corks and do not have cork taint potential.

3. Synthetic: Economy closure typically made from plastic. There is no risk of cork taint (TCA) however do not have aging potential.

Note: A "Corked" bottle of wine will smell and taste like wet cardboard with suppressed aromas - not harmful to drink. Caused by a chemical compound TCA around 5% of all bottles. Most people will classify any wine that is "off' or "not liked" as corked.

P.S. At Koi Zen we will replace any bottle that is "off", just return it in the best possible condition so we can evaluate the cause.
