Acquamark® is a whole, natural cork stopper designed to meet the needs of super-premium wines. Whole, natural corks are the most environmentally-friendly stoppers, and produce the top-quality seal needed to preserve fine wines through long aging. The Acquamark® cork goes beyond this normally high standard, applying a water-based coating of cork extract which binds to the stopper's surface, filling the lenticels and enhancing the sealing potential. BSG HandCraft recommends the Acquamark® for super-premium wines, wines that will be aged more than two years, or wherever the classic style of a whole, natural cork is desired. About Cork Dimensions... Most bottles tolerate a range of cork dimensions and still produce an acceptable seal. Wider corks create a tighter seal, but may be difficult to insert with small, handheld corkers. Micro-agglomerated corks compress less easily than whole, natural corks, and a smaller diameter agglomerated cork may have the same fit as a wider whole cork. Longer corks reduce the initial headspace in the bottle, and can also affect changes in ullage during long aging.
