(1) Releasable TCA content below the 0,5 ng/Ldetection limit; analysis performed in accordance to ISO 20752.

(2) In case of cork taint claim on a bottle sealed with our one by one inspected cork, we will buy the bottle back. We will test the wine and cork in our lab. If the corkderived TCA of the sample is ≥ 1.0ppt (ng/L) we will reimburse the retail release price of the wine.

THE PRODUCT

MASilva has developed an individual cork testing method for TCA analizys ¹. This fully automated process is based on cutting edge gas phase spectroscopy and available for high end natural cork to seal premium wines. It inspects every single cork one by one to detect any trace of cork taint ².

Over the last 45 years MASilva has established itself as an industry technology leader and its proprietary cork cleaning processes are recognized worldwide. With the implementation of this new state-of-the-art testing technology we once again demonstrate our determination to be the leading manufacturer of the finest premium cork.

OUR PROCESS

Our process tests for TCA, down to non-detectable levels of 0,5 ng/L. (1)

Our process was developed using gas phase spectroscopy and is the most sophisticated method to screen for TCA on finished, washed wine corks.

Our process is extremely accurate in detecting TCA; it performs on both washed and unwashed corks without any difference in detection level or reliability (2).

Our process is the result of 3 years of R&D with some of the best Universities in Europe.
