Captains Creek Organic Sparkling 2004

I tasted this wine in a blind line up, and while it could not be mistaken for a Champagne, it was clean, pleasant and well made. It showed an aroma of light toast, and a palate with notes of citrus, honey and very crisp acidity. In fact, it reminded me of certain other sparkling wines from the Macedon region – which is perhaps not surprising given their proximity and comparable cool climates. Certainly a better wine than their unusual 2008 pinot noir and worth a try. 83 points.
