Study Confirms….the obvious?

So, according to a study, consumers can’t tell the difference between wines closed with screwcaps or natural cork. Apparently, consumers blinding tasted the same wine, but with different closures. No difference.

Well, isn’t that the point those using screwcaps are making? Isn’t their use of screwcaps considered acceptable because the screwcap doesn’t affect the wine?

I wonder if any of the wines the consumers in this study sampled were corked? I don’t think so. If any were, consumers would surely have tasted a difference.
