Freixenet Cordon Negro Rosé sparkling wine delivers a premium, smooth, soft glass of bubbly with an appealing color and a delightfully long finish. This beautiful cava stands alone as an elegant choice with its fruity vanilla aroma and pleasantly balanced acidity.
Cordon Negro Rosé's bright, fruity personality envelops the senses in the glass with fresh raspberry and fruit cocktail aromas. The toasty palate mixes strawberry jam and red currant to deliver a pleasant mouth feel, wrapped up in a slow, light, sweet finish.
This wine goes perfectly with appetizers such as salmon cakes with tartar sauce. It is the ideal “picnic wine” to be served as an apéritif or with grilled chicken, roast turkey, herb-marinated grilled lamb or pork tenderloin.
Harvest begins at the end of September with the Trepat, and is followed at the beginning of October with the Garnacha. The grapes are taken to the winery and where they are destemmed and processed separately with a bladder press. The juice is left on the skins for ten hours before being pressed off and transferred to stainless steel tanks. After 10 to 12 days of interaction with the yeasts in perfect 59 to 63 degree atmosphere of the caves, the wines are racked, fined, filtered, and prepared for blending in traditional méthode champenoise, heralding the second fermentation.
