  • Don’t screwcaps eliminate the risk of cork taint?

    Cork is not the only source of TCA contamination of wine, so changing closures will not eliminate the risk of TCA taint. There are also other taints that have nothing to do with cork, such as TBA (triboromoanisole) and brettanomycaes, and using screwcaps will not protect against these.

    “That venerable and venerated doyen of wine, Len Evans AO and OBE has been selecting those Qantas wines for 42 years and chairman of the panel for 37. At a recent tasting some of his fellow judges rejected some of the wines because of the dreaded and oft mentioned ‘cork taint’. Trouble was that the ‘tainted’ wines were under screwcap!”
