Freixenet Cordon Rosado
Save $2.00 (18%)
This sparkling wine is fresh, crisp and lively. It is full of ripe cherry and berry flavors with a body that is exceptionally smooth and satiny. It is surprisingly dry with a long and satisfying finish. The grape varieties used in the creation of the base wine for this Cava are Trepat and Garnacha. Mediterranean red grapes are naturally lower in acid creating a softer brut without the typical astringent acidity found in most sparkling wines. These red grapes are also responsible for the attractive salmon-pink color of the wine.
Wine EnthusiastA little aggressive out of the chute, with a nose that's sort of raspy. The fruit on the palate is tangy and tastes like early picked nectarines with a lemon twist. Crisp and short, but very clean and focused.
