Cork vs screwcap

Cork vs screwcap? Choices choices….. How many of you have noticed a big rise in wine bottles that have screwcaps? Being that my influence is more Old World traditional style, I was against screwcaps at first. Actually, there are some top-class wineries using screwcaps nowadays. In reality, screwcaps create a more hermetic seal and the chances of oxygen getting into the wine are slimmer. A perfect example is the Oliverhill Winery Red Silk mcLaren Vale Shiraz… So don’t be put off the next time you are confronted by a screwcap!
