At the Croatian stand we were offered two kinds of Zlahtina, one grown on the plain and one on a mountainside both from the island of Krk. Not surprisingly the Mountain Zlahtina was by far the better and we hereby admit Zlahtina to the Slotovino Hall of Fame - not something we were about to do following our preliminary skirmish with this grape in the neighbouring island of Vis last year.

UK wine importers could do worse than introducing this excellent and delicious example to this country.
