Developed by South Australia’s Zork (now a subsidiary of Scholle Packaging), the SPK closure for sparking wines is not only easy to open, but its special resealable feature helps retain pressure inside the wine bottle.
This ensures high and consistent CO2 retention while keeping the product taint-free with no TCA or flavour modification.
For consumers, not only does this solution offer greater convenience and contemporary appeal, it also provides confidence in the consistency of the product. The closure also maintains the pleasing pop sound that comes with the sparkling wine consumer experience.
Made of plastic, the SPK closure consists of four separate Components: a cap with a tamper-proof band, a collet with a spring loading pin that allows it to be locked onto a standard wine bottle, a foil that acts as a high quality gas barrier keeping air out and gas in, and a seal which prevents leaks under extreme high pressure conditions.
The SPK closure is 100% recyclable, and also reusable – it can be used to reseal other similar bottles. According to Zork, the closure has a carbon footprint that is up to 40% less than cork and muselet.
