Storage and Transport of Wine

After bottling, keep wine upright for a minimum of 5 minutes.

Ideal bottle storage conditions are 15-20°C at 50-70% humidity.

Keep the wine cellar free of insect pests.

Wine should be transported in an upright position.

Maintaining cork equipment

Maintain the corker jaws free of nicks and signs of wear.

Ensure proper alignment of plunger and location ring.

Ensure corking machine operates smoothly, especially during compression.

Clean all cork-handling surfaces regularly with chlorine-free chemicals.

Seletion and storage of corks

Amorim can calculate the required cork diameter from the volume (V) of the neck of your bottle.

A wine with high CO2 may require a cork with a greater diameter than normal.

The shelf life of this product is 2 years.

Order your corks for immediate or quick use.

Store in a well-ventilated room with controlled temperature and humidity.

Inserting the cork

Ensure the cork is compressed slowly and to a diameter no less than 15.5mm.

Ensure insertion of the cork is as quick 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 bottleneck.

Headspace at 20°C should be at least 15mm.

Vacuum bottling or CO2 flushing will reduce internal pressures.
