Natural cork stoppers ensure that the wine is sealed in the glass bottle. With time, this sealing enables the maturation of wine, the exquisite ageing that happens through countless physical-chemical processes, both between its components and between those and the substances present in the bottle’s internal environment. This gradual evolution of the bottled wine takes place in an environment with very low oxygen content, but just enough to enable the wine to evolve properly.
To this day, only the natural cork stopper has been able to provide this perfect balance, allowing the proper evolution of the wine and the formation of its cherished bouquet.
The bouquet is a set of pleasant aromas that develop as the wine ages in the bottle. It is a valued component, which depends on the wine’s intrinsic quality and on the conditions under which it is aged.
With natural cork, it is possible to ensure excellent wine preservation without affecting the harmony of its components, granting a sign of quality to the wine. Due to its elasticity, compressibility and cellular structure, the stopper is the only sealant capable of ensuring this type of preservation for any type of wine.
Therefore, the natural cork stopper is the ideal stopper for wines that need to age in the bottle, but it can be used for any type of wine.
Natural cork stoppers are the choice of the best winemakers in the world and of the most demanding consumers. All processes and products used by ARDias comply with applicable legal requirements and regulations, namely the International Code of Cork Stopper Manufacturing Practices and the regulations for materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.
