A truly great sparkling bargain!
Backed by over 150 years of family-owned wine expertise, Freixenet’s exquisite cavas, artfully produced in the methode champenoise tradition, are Spanish sparkling wines of distinction that began their story with love. The romantic union of two of Spain’s oldest winemaking families began with a wedding that also brought the wineries under one roof as a business. Prospering through all of life’s joys, and enduring its sorrows, the Freixenet winery transformed its small start into a name known around the world. Gracefully gathering compliments, awards, and millions of cava fans, Freixenet applies the highest standards in winemaking for consistent quality and value. The third and fourth generations of the Ferrer family continue to attend to all the details that make their cavas the world’s preferred sparkling wines.
Fine, mid-lemon green colour with a good mousse. Pale edges showing a youthful wine. Clean citrus on the nose, backed by soft fruit aromas of peach and melon. Bright and fruity with an essence of peach, melon and candied citrus notes, culminating in a long, flavourful and clean crisp finish. Very well balanced and fresh and light on the palate.
After a controlled temperature fermentation (12C) in stainless steel, a blend ismade with the three grape varieties. The wine is bottled and yeast is added to setoff the second fermentation. The wine remains on its lees for a minimum maturation period of nine months.
