The myth, the Players:
- Corks are better for wine bottle then Twistcap.. well 400 years ago they didn't have any Twist-cap and cork was widely available in Europe so they have the field advantage.
-Twist-Cap make a perfect seal on the bottle content but have a bad rep with High Society circles, F-1 Jet setters etc etc.. also, Leonardo DaVinci probably had a Patent on a Twist-cap.
A team of four wine Aficionado will blindly taste the 2 wines of equal values from the same country and made from the same type of Grapes to determine: Cork or Twist-Cap?
Two Australian Wine. Both are rated pretty equally by WS and other well known wine references. *90+
