Thank you everyone for another great discussion on natural wine last week. Although it's a topic we come across frequently, there's a lot of great information to be had on the thread. Decide for yourself!
This week: Closure
How do corks compare to stelvin and other types of wine bottle closures, and why may a winemaker choose one over the other?
Dominique Lafon also spoke recently on the IDDT Podcast about the variability and susceptibility to TCA between corks from the same producer in the same batch, as well as their permeability and potential to expose the wine to oxygen, which is one of the reasons that he has made a move towards using DIAM corks.
