DLR MOSEL Tasting August 2012

The Viticulture and Oenology Dept. of public service centre to Agriculture of Mosel, has organized a bottling with the purpose to give to own associates a scientific information

on the different evolution that a white wine particularly aromatic such as Riesling, will have into the bottle consequently to the stopper used.

26 of the most important worldwide producers of stoppers have participated to this bottling allowing the comparison between natural corks, micro-agglomerated corks, synthetic stoppers, screw caps and glass stoppers.

Data published concerning sensorial tastings conducted by a panel of 73 judges on the 26 tested stoppers at 24 months from bottling made in August 2010 in according to three tasting criteria chosen and monitored by the jury have decreed as follow:

1° Favorite Wine: 1= very good / 6 = insufficient

KORKEDTM SPIN- (minus):2° classified (score: 2,63)

KORKED™ SPIN:7° classified

(score: 2,80)


2° Intensity of aromas / odours: 1= reduced / 7 = oxidized

KORKEDTM SPIN:1° classified (score: 3,36)

KORKED™SPIN:2° classified (score: 3,38)

3°Intensity of aromas / odours : 1= not defined/musty / 7 = very well defined

KORKEDTM SPIN- (minus):1° classified (score: 4,98)

KORKED™SPIN:5° classified (score: 4,76)

The best classified between the 26 tested closures is result to be KORKEDTM SPIN- (minus), closure with low permeability designed for white aromatic wines, with a total score of 1,3.

Moreover at the third place we find KORKEDTM SPIN, closure with medium permeability, which demonstrates as the correct management of oxygen allows may exalt the wine organoleptic characteristics.

This tasting confirms the excellent results in terms of evolution of wine in bottle and so the tasting ones that KORKEDTM SPIN closures allow to obtain. The results in fact, demonstrate as the choice of closure with the correct permeability suitable for the type of bottled wine, allows an amplification of its own sensorial characteristics.
