Assistant Winemaker, Jordan Winery
Jordan prides itself in making decisions based on quality, and we choose to select the top grade of cork to close our bottles. Our customers have high expectations when they open a bottle of our wine, and we are confident we are doing everything to ensure premium quality both in the wine and closure. Many of our consumers choose to open our wines for a celebration. The presentation of extracting a cork and the sound of the cork are part of the celebration. We have tested alternative closures over the years and while some of the different closures taste great upon release, the cork tends to perform better after additional bottle aging. We continue to believe that cork is the best closure for wines to age gracefully over time.
