Recommended for wines with a certain complexity and intended for early consumption (up to two years). Neutrocork® is distinguished by its great structural stability, resulting from a uniform-sized micro cork granule composition pressed into individual moulds.
Easy to use and especially suited for high-speed bottling lines. With an attractive appearance and easy extraction, it stands as an extremely competitive natural closure in terms of both performance and price.

Selection and storage of stoppers
- Amorim can calculate the required cork diameter from the design of the neck of your bottle, the characteristics of the wine and the corking conditions.
- A wine with high CO2 may require a cork with a greater diameter than normal.
- Order your corks for immediate or short term use. These stoppers should be used within 6 months of the date of manufacture.
- Store in a well-ventilated room with controlled temperature between 15°C and 25°C and 50% to 70% humidity.
- Ensure any dust is removed before corking.
- Ensure the cork is compressed slowly to a diameter of not less than 15.5mm.
- Ensure insertion of the stopper is performed as quickly as possible.
- For standard bottlenecks, the cork should be inserted to 1mm below the top of the neck.
- Minimise moisture on the inside of the bottle neck.
- Headspace at 20°C should be at least 15mm.
- Internal pressure after corking should not exceed 1.2 bar. Vacuum bottling is recommended.
- Always ensure the corker jaws are free of nicks and signs of wear.
- Ensure proper alignment of plunger and location ring.
- Ensure corking machine operates smoothly, especially during compression.
- Regularly clean all surfaces that come into contact with cork with chlorine-free products.
- Ensure the equipment is suited to the cork used.
Storage and transport of wine
- After bottling, the bottles should be kept in an upright position for at least 10 minutes.
- Ideal bottle storage conditions are: 15-20°C at 50-70% humidity.
- Keep the wine cellar free of insects.
- Bottles should be transported in an upright position.
