Neutrocork® is the latest in new-generation natural cork closures. This 'micro-agglomerated' cork is composed of small, uniformly-sized cork granules that have been pressed into an individual mold. The result is an attractive, natural closure that is affordable, easy to remove, and extremely durable - so it stands up to mechanical bottling. The Neutrocork® is recommended for wines intended for consumption within two years.
Most bottles tolerate a range of cork dimensions and still produce an acceptable seal. Wider corks create a tighter seal, but may be difficult to insert with small, handheld corkers. Micro-agglomerated corks compress less easily than whole, natural corks, and a smaller diameter agglomerated cork may have the same fit as a wider whole cork. Longer corks reduce the initial headspace in the bottle, and can also affect changes in ullage during long aging.
