Freixenet Cordon Rosado

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Cava is the Spanish version of Champagne and probably one of the world’s most famous Cava’s comes from Freixenet who could match Moet & Chandon in size and output. The sibling wine to this, the Cordon Negro continues to be the world’s most popular sparkling import. This is just a little softer than the Brut style with an attractive tinge of salmon colour. Fresh and lively with nectarine and red fruits it continues with berry flavours and a soft satin like texture. It finishes dry and would work well with savoury tapas dishes.

Winemaker's Notes

Bright strawberry pink, with an abundant mid sized bubble, which rises quickly in the glass, and forms a good crown at the top of the glass. The nose is wonderfully fruity, as a result of the low fermentation temperatures which allow most of the primary grape aromas to be retained.

There are rich floral and fresh bay leaf aromas from the Garnacha, blending with ripe red fruits, blackberry and strawberry, as well as exotic grenadine, dried figs and dates from Trepat. All these combine with elegant notes of medium term bottle ageing. The palate is fresh and light, soft and appealing. The red fruits, typical of the Rosado cavas and still wines of the region dominate the palate.
