Description

This Italian cork is a high quality colmated cork.  These corks have the ageable lifespan of Natural Cork, but are closer to the price of an agglomerated or overrun cork.

Colmated corks are Natural Corks that were not quite flawless enough to make a grade, but are then filled in with agglomerated pieces, resulting in an ageable, but ecoonmical cork.

As good as natural corks but cheaper.
Andrew Pohlman on Oct 29, 2020
I settled for this cork because First quality corks only come in 1000 ct packaging. I'd rather have a high quality all-natural solid cork, and I'd be willing to pay a premium for them, but I'm a small home winemaker and there doesn't appear to be a market for small-quantity packs of good corks.

Worked fine. The first order of 25 only received 24. Second order of 100 received 102. Maybe that was a makeup.

Colmated Wine corks
My first time using this cork and have not had time for the wine to age so I do not know how they will stand up at this time. However, based on the cost of previous corks that I have used many of them were poor quality and I threw some out and some that I did use leaked as well these seem much better. They inserted easily and the cost is much more favorable.

Great Corks - Cheaper than All Natural
According to the Cork Quality Council, CQC, colmated corks have the life span of all natural high grade corks, but are substantially cheaper. So you could use them for a complex Cab you intend to age for 20 years or more - which I did. According to the CQC, agglomerated should only last 1 year, and tech 1+1 up to 3 years. According to Wine Folly, the simplest reds, and whites like Chardonnay and Viognier, need 2.5 years MINIMUM aging. So factoring in realistic aging times and overall costs, these easily become the go to corks.
