Post Bottling Reduction and Permeability Performance

Presented by Alan Limmer PhD, Stonecroft Winery NZ - APCOR Cork Seminar - June 2006 - St. Helena CA

Summary : Dr. Limmer’s experience as a New Zealand winemaker gives him extensive familiarity with modern screwcap closures. His presentation explains the source of reduced aromas that can be encountered when a lack of oxygen is present in wine. Dr. Limmer is convinced that many wines suffer loss of fruit and present a characteristic "dullness" when this condition occurs.
