Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9958309A1] A process for preparing cork articles, in particular cork stoppers for wine bottles, which comprises a step of treating cork with a phenol oxidising enzyme. Preferred phenol oxidising enzymes are laccase, peroxidase, catechol oxidase, o-aminophenol oxidase. The treatment with a phenol oxidising enzyme reduces the characteristic cork taint/astringency which is frequently imparted to the bottled wine.
