Travel down to the vineyards and orchards, let’s pick ourselves up a bottle of Sparkling Wine from Croatia and Apple Brandy from England, it’s time to craft a Fizz Cocktail.

Sparkling Wine – Didin San

A Winery from the wonderful Sparkling Wine producing country of Croatia, with a vast and delicious history, Croatian Sparkling Wines aren’t often experienced outside of the country, they even say that the best Croatian Sparkling Wines never leave the country, well, it seems that this little gem slipped out and made its way to the Glass of Bubbly Awards, taking home a Silver Medal, produced in the Traditional Method, this Sparkling Wine is well worth a taste.

Hotel Borovnik – Didin San

Aroma – “Dried apricot and peaches, yellow fruits, yeasty and freshly baked pastries, notes of citrus, dried lemon, lemon on pancakes, and more on the aroma.”

Flavour – “Fizzy yellow floral and citrus characters, with notes of peaches, apricots, yellow apples and lemon on the palate, not forgetting a faint hint of a lemon pastry.”
