I am delighted to read that two better known Australian sparkler producers - Chandon Austalia and Seppelt - have switched to crown caps for their top wines:
I especially like the slip label around the crown cap down the
CROWN SEAL CLOSURE
RECOMMENDEND SEAL FOR LONG
TERM BOTTLE MATURATION
Especially the fact that Chandon has moved to this step could be a
giant step to cork-taint-free sparklers worldwide.
