Description

A synthetic cork with the ability to last 4 years plus. Supercorks are manufactured in Italy by Enolandia. One of the very first companies to make a synthetic cork, they have a history of quality since the 1980's. Supercorks have been tested to keep their elasticity and sealing integrity for at least four years. This makes them a nice alternative for winemakers who want to eliminate the potential issues of porosity or TCA contamination inherent in cheaper natural corks but also want the ability to age wine more than a few years. This cork measures 23x43mm.

We recommend using a floor corker to more easily insert the cork into the bottle.

Depending on the diameter of the bottle mouth, these corks require 48 to 55 lbs of force to be removed. They can be very difficult to remove with a standard twist and pull corkscrew, and therefore we recommend removing the cork with a wine key or levered corkscrew to provide additional leverage.

This cork will last significantly longer than most natural corks. If the cork is heated in warm water, it makes for an easy bottling process.

Nice corks
These synthetic corks are much more durable than their natural counterpart option. I've had these corks in bottles for four to five years with no problems. The trick to bottling with these corks is to heat them in warm water (130 degrees or so) for about 10 minutes to make them more pliable for compression and insertion by the corker.
