Producers warned to be aware of wine faults at bottling

Published:  18 May, 2010

Producers need to be made more aware of wine faults that can occur at the time of bottling, says the global director of NomaSense Business, at enclosures producer Nomacorc.

"Many winemakers and producers blame wine faults on the enclosures, whether that be cork or screwcap," said Olav Aagaard at the LIWF today. "But what is quite often overlooked is the amount of oxygen that is left in the bottle before the bottle is sealed, which can can cause inconsistencies and oxidisation."

Nomacorc has produced an electronic device, called the NomaSense that measures the amount of oxygen contained in each bottle in order to deliver consistant oxygen management across a vintage.

Aagaard added, producers who change from cork to screwcap without proper advice do not realise the implications that changing their packaging may have on the liquid inside.
