Guala Closures Group introduces a new range of liners with different levels of oxygen permeability rates for the wine industry, developed through a partnership with Lyon-based Manufacture Génerale de Joints (MGJ).
The two companies have worked for the last two years to develop the Oenoseal branded technology, which extends across all the Guala Closures screw cap family for wines.
The range currently comprises:
- Oenoseal ONYX – with an aluminum layer to ensure maximum impermeability to oxygen for delicate white wines and aromatic rosés, with a liner that better ensures sulphite-free wines.
- Oenoseal IVORY – ideal for white, rosé and red wines that require a low, but regular, supply of oxygen (nano-oxygenation).
It enables the amount of free sulphur dioxide to be reduced when bottling.
- Oenoseal CORAL – designed for white, rosé and red wines that require a more significant supply of oxygen (nano-oxygenation) and enables the avoidance of reduction problems for wines with high tannin levels.
“Producers now take advantage of the wide and available range of screw caps that we offer under our Wine Developers platform, including all the branding customization that our patented technology allows,” says CEO and chairman Marco Giovannini.
“They can now also select the exact liner for the exact wine. And all without changing the settings on their bottling lines.”
