It was interesting and informative to see South African wine lovers reflecting the world-wide trend of choosing natural cork as the preferred closure for their bottle of wine. In the first reader survey done by www.winemag.co.za, one of the leading authorities on South African wine news, trends and opinions, 61% of readers stated natural cork as their closure of choice -  that figure increasing to more than two thirds of respondents if technical cork stoppers are included.
