Jamak, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of silicone products, has introduced Sil-Cork®--a premium wine closure made with a proprietary silicone and natural cork compound. With extensive testing, Sil-Cork has been designed with all the benefits of a traditional cork, but without the TCA risk or cost. Wines need oxygen to reach their full potential, but there is a fine line between too much oxygen and not enough. Many wines are spoiled when this balance isn’t reached—resulting in oxidation or reduction. Sil-Cork has shown in tests to have a comparable oxygen transfer rate to that of premium natural cork, and it does this more consistently than cork! Sil-Cork has a unique appearance that looks surprisingly similar to natural cork, but it’s silicone compound won’t crack, crumble or dry-out like natural corks can, helping to preserve the wine and provide the consumer with an enjoyable extraction process. The resilient properties of the product allow for easy re-insertion in an unfinished bottle, allowing the consumer to seal the wine for consumption at a later time. Other alternatives to natural cork, such as plastic synthetic corks, are often difficult to extract with a cork screw and can alter the intended taste of the wine. Screw Caps that are used to seal wines take the tradition out of opening a bottle of wine, and can also prohibit the oxygen needed to mature a good wine. Sil-Cork is an Eco-Friendly product. There are no petroleum, oil-based materials in the compound like plastic corks. Tested extensively through in-house research and independent labs such as Vinquiry, the Sil-Cork brand is now offered to the wineries of North America. This fall, look for the Sil-Cork label on your favorite wines such as Tara Vineyard, DeBeque Canyon, Longboard Vineyards, and many more to come. Now enjoying your wine is as simple as open, pour, Cheers! For constant updates on wines incorporating the Sil-Cork® closure and for more information, visit www.sil-cork.com or call 1-800-517-7600.
