To twist or not to twist, that is the question



Leopard’s Leap’s multi award-winning winemaker, Eugene van Zyl, is confident in the label’s decision to move from cork to screw top with its Lookout Range. He said this in response to a recent report in a popular Cape Town morning newspaper which stated that screw tops on wine bottles could run the wine itself.

6_junecorkscrewTai Collard, managing editor of Cape-based direct wine marketer, Wine-of-the-Month Club, was quoted as saying, “Wine in bottles sealed with screw tops could be ruined by the smell of rotten eggs”. The article claimed that more than one in 50 screw top bottles sold in Britain could be affected by the problem.

According to van Zyl, “The chances of contamination all boils down to the type of cap and sealing or lamination used, but at Leopard’s Leap, we were thorough in our testing and choice of materials. Out of the two to three million bottles of Lookout produced, we have had zero complaints.”

The introduction of screw tops has been one of the greatest revolutions to take place in the wine industry in recent years. The new process is viewed as being safer and more reliable than the traditional corking methods. Throwing doubt on the invention however, has been the fate of some unlucky producers who have experienced a chemical process known as “sulphidisation”, which comes about when the screw top provides an insufficient seal for the bottle, resulting in the wine coming into contact with air.

Luckily for us, we have Leopard’s Leap’s winemaker’s guarantee – so drink up and enjoy!
