- IMPORTED - Spain
"Freixenet, the worlds biggest producer of method traditionelle sparkling wines, produces a value, for-money rose with a tonne of personality. It comes in a vibrant cherry red; the nose is raspberry, cherry and woody spices. The palate is full-flavoured and freshened with brisk acidity to finish." Jeni Port, Sunday Age (25/SEP/2011)
Spain’s biggest bubbly maker has joined the rose rush with this lively drop with strawberry and raspberry fruit on the nose and palate and a crisp finish. Enjoy as an aperitif, with Asian dishes or seafood.Courier Mail, Foreign affair, (30/SEP/2008)
Winery Tasting Notes
70% Trepat, 30% Garnacha (Grenache).
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 between 15 and 17°C, 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.
This delicious sparkling is best enjoyed with seafood, asian food, fruit and cheese platters and is perfect for the long, hot summer.
