Corked Wines

To the inex­pe­ri­enced wine drinker, the term “cork taint” or “corked wine” may be assumed to be par­ti­cles of cork float­ing in an unopened bot­tle or in a glass of wine. But it is sim­ply a chem­i­cal reac­tion which, some­times, occurs dur­ing the period of cork ster­il­iza­tion in the winery.

Corked wine is not, in any way, unsafe to drink even though it may have an unpleas­ant smell or taste. If you hap­pen to detect a bot­tle of corked wine, in a restau­rant, sim­ply draw it to the atten­tion of the waiter; before most of the wine has been consumed!
