Do red wines age well under screwcaps?
Traditionally it was believed that wine needs oxygen, which permeates the cork, to age. However, in a recent publication by Tyson Stelzer, Screwed for Good: The Case for Screw Caps on Red Wines, this argument has broken down. On whether “corks provide a good seal and screwcaps are inferior?" Tyson states "On this issue, quite the contrary.”
We have known for some time that red wine does not actually need oxygen to age. In fact, it is done in the bottle anaerobically, meaning no air is required. This means that a red wine can age gracefully and free from any cork taint when bottled under screwcap. To find out more about the benefits of screwcaps click here.
