retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Wine Spectator reports on a 10-year study done by the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI) that demonstrated clearly that screw cap closures on wine bottles are clearly superior to virtually every kind of cork when it comes to preventing cork taint, oxidation and other problems while maintaining freshness and taste.

The decade-long test, says Peter Godden, group manager at the AWRI, provided beyond a doubt that “most of the wines sealed with closures other than screw cap were completely undrinkable."

I need to step away from my laptop. My tears are likely to short out the keyboard.

(Full disclosure. I stole the “Cork-Screwed” phrase from the Wine Spectator headline. It was too good to pass up.)
