Hi everybody, I just bought a Portugese floor corker today and a bag of Nomacorc corks for a batch of wine I have coming up and was online tonight and saw a product description of the corks I bought as follows:
<TABLE id=Table1 cellSpacing=1 cellPadding=1 width=650>
<TD>Nomacorc Synthetic Wine Corks #9 x 1 1/2". Bag of 30. Nomacorc Synthetic Wine Corks: Synthetic corks will not become tainted, won’t dry out, crumble, break or leak. A great way to provide a barrier to oxidization for wines that will aged for a few years. ****We recommend using the Gilda Single lever corker with these corks****
While some Portugese or Italian floor corkers may work without problems, there is also a chance that the cork will be scored as it is inserted into the bottle, causing leaks.
Has anybody had a problem with a floor corker and the nomacorc corks? Is there anything I can do to prevent a potential problem? Thanks in advance for your help.
