Another producer abandons screwcap

Another producer abandons screwcap | Wine in the World | Scoop.it
A leading Australian winery has returned to cork after five years of "persistent quality control issues" using screwcaps.

 

Rusden Wines is abandoning screwcap for cork citing bottle variation, 'sweaty' characteristics and reductive notes. In plain terms they just think that screwcaps are bad for their unfilitered craft wines.

 

They follow a short, but notable, list of wineries returning to cork. Maybe the tree farmers of Portugal will enjoy a new revival?

Screw-capped sparkling??

Screw-capped sparkling?? | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

De Bortoli are launching a screwcapped sparkling wine.

 

Apprently opening bubbly wines puts the girls off! certainly not the girls I know. In fact, I know quite a few people who say that the "pop" is one of their favourite sounds.

 

What do you think? Has somebody got a screw loose?
