Findings Confirm The Positive Halo Effect of Aluminum Screw Cap/Closures When Compared With Synthetic Corks

Aluminum screw cap/closures have definitely come a long way since it was first released in the wine industry. The image portrayed for these screw cap/ closures is that it is only used for low-quality wines. However, in the early 2000s, Australia launched a large investigation around aluminum screw cap/closures, and today, the majority of the wine industry is bottling the beverage with these seals.

However, the market for screw-capped bottled wines in the U.S. still struggles. As per experts, the U.S. market is very different from others. In the U.K. and Australia, the acceptance of screw caps/closures and synthetics is greater, while in the U.S. natural cork is still the preferred choice.

But as the saying goes, one shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. So similarly, should you judge a wine bottle by its screw cap/closure? Cultural preconceptions aside, the screw caps/closures can tell a great deal about the wine it encloses. It can hint at longevity, quality, culture, and history.

Experts have spent a lot of time focusing on what lies within the bottle. For once, let’s get to know what sits above it. Here’s your guide to aluminum closures and caps.

Advantages:

Consistency:

TCA, the taint that affects so many wines under natural cork, is almost nonexistent under aluminum closures and caps. Also, because there’s less oxygen interaction with wines in comparison to a cork, winemakers can theoretically reduce the amount of sulfur dioxide that's used as an antioxidant before bottling.

Longevity:

Because wines under aluminum closures and caps reside in a relatively oxygen-free atmosphere, they’re believed to be longer lived.

Affordability:

Aluminum screw caps and closures can vary in price, depending on quality. Generally, however, they’re cheaper than natural cork.

Easy to Open:

Aluminum screw caps and closures open with a simple twist of the wrist. There’s no need for any gadgets beyond a free hand and a little muscle.
