What Is Corked Wine?

Answer

Corked wine is bottled wine in which the cork has been contaminated with Trichloroanisole, commonly abbreviated as TCA. TCA is not a health risk, but it somewhat affects the quality of the wine. TCA, sometimes called cork taint, can ruin the wine's taste and flavour, and even interfere with the wine's aroma.
