Chandon Garden Spritz is THE drink of the summer

Forget pouring orange juice into your champagne, Chandon Garden Spritz is WAY classier.

This gorgeous new drink combines Yarra Valley grown sparkling with Australian crafter orange bitters. It’s best served cold with a sprig of rosemary.

Once summer barbecues return, we’re sure it will be a hit.

How is Chandon Garden Spritz made?

Chandon’s grapes are grown in Victoria’s Yarra Valley using traditional French methods.

To make the bitters, Chandon blended Australian navel and blood oranges with orange peel and natural herbs and spices – creating a truly Australian take on the Spritz experience.

Chandon does not use any artificial flavours or colours.

What to serve it with

Chandon Garden Spritz pairs beautifully with spicy Asian food, sushi and sashimi, old cheddar, dried exotic fruits and nuts.

But we’d also say it would be the perfect welcome drink to any summer barbecue.

Chandon’s tasting notes

“Spicy character, zesty yet rich orange flavours, nice citric tension which balance the sweetness. Bitterness becomes more obvious at the end, to bring some taste lift which counterbalances the sweet character and invites to repeat the sip.”

Always drink responsibly

Chandon’s Yarra Valley vineyard is currently closed to visitors due to the Melbourne lockdown. But in better times you can find it at 727 Maroondah Highway, Coldstream, VIC.
