The mould I am not worried about as I think it has something to do with humidity and the fact that the caps/foil go on later before sending out from the winery. The other point about the gunk is probably due to seepage but we need a scientist to explain the reaction to air/whatever. Just my guess!!!

As to being caused by outside elements, I don't think so. The molasses was inside the foil on the bottom (as the bottle lay) and it was the only bottle (of many) that was effected. Also, the bottle was on one of the lowest racks and there was nothing on other bottles above it.
I'm guessing seepage and fermentation/evaporation but that is purely a guess.
And why is it dark? Perhap pigment from the foil leaching?
