Clear colorless bottles have recently become popular with white wine producers in many countries, including GreeceCanada and New Zealand. Dark-colored bottles are most commonly used for red wines, but many white wines also still come in dark green bottles.
The main reason for using colored or tinted glass is that natural sunlight can break down desirable antioxidants such as vitamin c and tannins in a wine over time, which affects storability and can cause a wine to prematurely oxidise.
Dark glass can prevent oxidation and increase storage life. It is therefore mostly ready-to-drink white wines with a short anticipated storage lifespan which are bottled in clear colorless bottles.
Foils and netting[ edit ] A paper strip beneath the foil Commercial corked wine bottles typically have a protective sleeve called a foil commonly referred to as a "capsule" covering the top of the bottle, the purpose of which is to protect the cork from being gnawed away by rodents or infested with the cork weevil and to serve as collar to catch small drips when pouring.
The foil also serves as a decorative element of the bottle's label. Foils were historically made of leadbut research showed that trace amounts of toxic lead could remain on the lip of the bottle and mix with the poured wine,  so lead foil wrapping was slowly phased out, and by the s,  most foils were made of tinheat-shrink plastic polyethylenePVCaluminium or polylaminate aluminium.
Sealing wax is sometimes used, or the foil can be omitted entirely. Modern day bottles of Rioja carry a much finer wire netting as a decoration. A punt, also known as a kick-up, is the dimple at the bottom of a wine bottle.
There is no consensus explanation for its purpose[ citation needed ]. The more commonly cited explanations include: This technique leaves a punt mark on the base of the bottle; by indenting the point where the pontil is attached, this scar would not scratch the table or make the bottle unstable.
It had the function of making the bottle less likely to topple over—a bottle designed with a flat bottom only needs a small imperfection to make it unstable—the dimple historically allowed for a larger margin of error.
It consumes some volume of the bottle, allowing the bottle to appear larger for the same amount of wine, which may impress the purchaser. The empty bottle would be thrust bottom-end down onto this pin, puncturing a hole in the top of the punt, guaranteeing the bottle could not be refilled [folklore].
It prevents the bottle from resonating as easily, decreasing the likelihood of shattering during transportation[ citation needed ]. It allows bottles to be more easily stacked end to end. When a stream of water is injected into the bottle and impacts the punt, it is distributed throughout the bottom of the bottle and removes residues[ citation needed ].
Environmental impact[ edit ] Glass retains its color on recyclingand the United Kingdom has a large surplus of green glass because it imports a large quantity of wine but produces very little.
This would reduce the cost of transportation and its carbon footprintand provide a local market for recycled green glass. Following declining sales of wine boxes in the UK, in the Office for National Statistics removed them from its Consumer Price Index measure of inflation.NEW Bible Science Children's Ministry Curriculum.
