  • First Quality Corks Agglomerated First Quality Corks Agglomerated
    Micro-agglomerated corks are a recent advance in the industry that compared to standard agglomerated corks give: - more elasticity, - greater consistency/reliability - easier extraction - a more uniform appearance - smoother feel - virtually zero TCA Granules sizes are around 0.5-2.0mm and are bonded using food-grade binding agents, to make them extremely safe. They are appropriate for wines that are going to be stored for less than 3 years, as they do not have the more open pore structure of natural corks that allow more oxygen to enter the bottle to promote the maturation of the wine. Micro-agglomerated cork stoppers will give low and very consistent oxygen transmission rates, which will help to preserve fruit characteristics in the wine. Micro-agglomerated corks are a significantly lower-priced alternative to natural corks, but a far more attractive looking option to screw caps or synthetic alternatives as well as coming from a completely sustainable natural source.
  • Diam II Corks Winery Grade Diam II Corks Winery Grade
    DIAM II Corks: (Formerly called Altec) Same great Altec cork, even a little better! In producing the superb DIAM II corks, natural cork is micro-fragmented, and most of the TCA bearing material, called lignin, is removed. The remaining pure cork flour is blended with a very small percentage of polymer, which enhances the natural elasticity and sealing properties of the cork. The result is a nearly 100% natural cork, perfect in shape and without defect or pores, superior in appearance and sealing quality, and with far lower TCA levels than other corks. The REFERENCE corks also recover shape immediately, permitting bottles to be place on their sides at once. REFERENCE corks give you a perfect seal, and a superior appearance, every time! No soaking required. - We recommend a Floor Corker. **Formerly known as Altec Corks In producing the superb Altec corks, natural cork is micro-fragmented, and most of the TCA bearing material called lignin is removed.

  • Synthetic Corks  Nomacorc® Synthetic Corks Nomacorc®
    Nomacorcs® are made by a unique, patented, co-extrusion process that binds the interior and exterior sections of the cork by heat adhesion. Extrusion molding is a continuous process that provides a very consistent quality. Nomacorc® is simply a better closure because its small, uniform, closed cell structure creates a better barrier from oxygen and preserves the quality of your wine. This size chamfered cork is made exclusively for LD Carlson and the corks are printed with an attractive Spanish grape design. We recommend the use of any hand or floor corker with these corks.
