If the customer perceives the cork as being cheap (as in synthetic corks and screwcaps), then the perception will be that the wine is cheap, too.
I will admit that some Napa Chards have exceeded the idea of balance in favor of the overdone ("What was that vintage? 2006 Louisville Slugger? Yum!") With that being said, I'd rather have an overoaked Chard than one that tastes like lemonade laced with pineapple juice. I want WINE, not a melted popsicle.
Every time I find a video about cork, I will post it. This was a news report from last year, and somehow I missed it!
I feel the environmental impact of the cork industry cannot be underestimated.
It bodes well for the resurgence of cork, particularly in light of serious environmental and climate concerns.
After all, cork isn't trying to function like screwcaps or synthetics, but the verso is most definitely true.
I will not hug a tree, become a vegan, or give up my SUV, but I can passionately promote the use of natural cork in wines.
I'm so tired of seeing the currently stylish attitude of bashing cork, often by people who claim to be environmentally conscious. Reread the articles! Screwcaps and synthetics ain't green! At all!
"There has never been a peer reviewed or scientific study done to corroborate the outlandish claims of 5-10% spoilage of wines due to the natural cork closure. This a fallacy, perpetuated by those with a vested, financial interest in selling alternative closures. I'm happy to have you quote me on that."
The cork forest sucks up CO2 which is generated in part by the plastic and aluminum refining processes. "Endocrine disrupter" is not a phrase you'll see in relationship to cork. And there’s no such thing as a “cork spill.”
