Naturity and Xpür REACHING A NEW LEVEL

Employed in the treatment of natural corks and micro-agglomerated stoppers, respectively, Naturity® and Xpür® deliver non-detectable TCA performance across different wine price points.

Research for the patent-pending Naturity® technology began in 2016 with the NOVA School of Science and Technology, and is based on the principles of thermal desorption through a proprietary, non-sequential use of pressure, temperature, purified water and time. No artificial elements are used in the process.

Xpür® improves upon the conventional supercritical CO2 application developed several decades ago, reengineering and upgrading the concept with 21st-century technology. Amorim’s new, innovative take on the system uses only 25% of the energy and just 10% of the CO2 previously required.

Naturity®
Naturity®

The world’s greenest and most effective anti-TCA technology for natural corks. An entirely natural process applied to an entirely natural product.

Amorim partnered with UNL’s experts to launch Naturity®, the most recent technology to maximise the performance of natural cork stoppers by defeating TCA and other sensory-deviation compounds. Thanks to an optimized process that combines pressure, temperature, purified water and time, Naturity® separates TCA molecules from cork’s cellular structure, keeping the crucial features of this unique material intact and its remarkable performance, essential to the protection and evolution of the wine, untouched.

We believe that balancing Nature and technology is the way forward to create some of the strongest product propositions available in the industry. With Naturity®, we wrap cork’s unbeatable cellular structure around sophisticated technology while respecting Nature’s remarkable work and the full integrity of this material.

Natural Cork Stopper

Single piece, premium value

Made from a single piece of cork, the iconic natural cork stopper is the perfect match for the world's best wines, and the closure of choice for the world's leading winemakers and the most sophisticated wine lovers. Our top-of-the-range product is 100% natural and extracted from a single cork strip. It's the ideal closure for premium wines, which may need to age in the bottle, playing a critical role in their evolution.

The industry’s best natural cork stoppers are now one step away from perfection thanks to Naturity®, the world’s most advanced anti-TCA technology, and the culmination of years of research and development at Amorim to defeat sensory-deviation compounds. Uncovering natural cork’s higher nature, Naturity® delivers premium value with superior neutrality.

Xpür®
Xpür®

All Neutrocork® Premium and Qork® stoppers now feature Xpür®, the world’s most advanced and greenest micro aglommerated anti-TCA technology.

Amorim’s R&D has partnered with the field’s leading experts to bring supercritical fluid technology well into the 21st Century, launching Xpür® the world’s greenest and most efficient anti-TCA technology for microagglomerated corks. A highly effective process per se, the Xpür® system cleanses cork using less energy, creating a positive impact on the planet. This groundbreaking process allows for the removal of TCA and other sensory-deviation molecules that may exist in the granules, without compromising cork’s natural properties. At the molecular level, cork’s elastic, physical-mechanical features remain intact, without the need to use any artificial components.

The evolution of neutrality

Neutrocork® Premium is the latest generation technical stopper which guarantees great structural stability for a perfect performance. 80% cork granule composition ensures top performance. Composed of uniform sized micro cork granules, with high elastic properties and pressed into individual moulds.
