Poll: Closure on closures?

The debate over the effectiveness of screwcaps is largely over (closed) in Australia and New Zealand. We’ve all had a gutful of the inconvenience and waste of poor-performing corks. But is there still a place for cork or is it good night Irene, it’s all over Rover, the only place for cork is in the neck of history? Recently, a Barossa Valley producer switched one of its (red) wines (back) from screwcap to cork. Is this madness? The question is – in the simplest of simple terms – in an ideal world, would you like to see all wine bottled carefully under screwcap, and cork replaced altogether?

In an ideal world, would all table wine be sealed with a screwcap?
