|Thursday| Silicon dioxide layer helps prevent cork from tainting Wine

Posted in Wine by Vinum Vine on February 4, 2010

Nanopool Wine Industry new technology coated nano-scale SiO2 at the surface of cork to help wine mature independently; while preventing the wood  from tainting wine. 

2,4,6 trichloroanisole  (TCA), geosmin, guaiacol, and MIB are responsible  for the scents and additive flavors of  the “age” in wine.

To solve this problem;  Nanopool Wine Industry mixed molten SiO2 with water and ethanol solution into a glassy solution as  film-coating.
