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. Recommended for premium wines, wines that will be aged more than two years, or wherever the classic style of a whole, natural cork is desired. Cork measures 24mm x 45mm.
Note that while this natural cork is slightly larger than our Standard #9 Micro-Agglomerated corks, natural cork tends to compress more and can still be inserted easily with all styles of corkers.
