Max Allen on closures

Just found a nice to-camera piece on closures by Australian wine writer Max Allen, originally on a show called Better Homes and Gardens, and which is now on the Zork website - you can see it here. Until this, I'd never seen a Zork in action before. I met Max for lunch at St John a while back (my old blog tells me it was 15 September 2005); he's a nice chap.

I'm looking forward to an Alion vertical and lunch tomorrow, at The Square. Should be fun.

Have had a few wines with Zork closures, mostly from Don Sebastiani & Sons (local here in Sonoma). They work pretty well, with the exception of getting the closure out for the first time. You'll end up pulling your fingernails back trying to get it to budge. I learned quickly to keep a pair of pliers handy.

After removing the first time, it's easy to stop and remove after that.

They're handy if you don't drink the wine in a single evening.

Hi Jaime and Mr Vino,

Thank you for your comments on ZORK. We are aware of the extraction issue which comes from variations in the glass bottle specifications. We have addressed these issues and trust that you next experience with ZORK will allow you to enjoy the wine without the extraction issues!

Kind Regards,

Amy Walters
