  • Are sulphide-like odours in wines under screwcaps not nearly as big a problem as TCA and random oxidation with cork?

    The incidence and intensity of TCA continues to fall and the latest research shows that cork is remarkable consistent in terms of oxygen ingress.

    That does not mean that cork producers can relax. Amorim will remain ever vigilant against TCA. Our R&D effort will help us better understand and control oxygen ingress through corks and we will work with winemakers to minimise the risk of ‘random oxidation’ associated with bottling line operations.

    While the problem curve for cork is coming down, the problem curve for screwcaps is going up.

    Screwcap producers and wine researchers are a long way from knowing how to avoid the sulphide-like odours (SLOs).

    More and more questions are being raised about the effect of the screwcap on wine development.

  • When does the first stripping take place?

    The first stripping takes place when the cork oak is 25 years old and the trunk has reached a perimeter of 70 centimetres, measured 1.5 metres from the ground. Subsequent strippings take place at intervals of at least nine years.
