From the bottle:
"Freixenet is crisp, dry, fruity and hard to pronounce. Made in the traditional method, this sparkling wine with cherry aromas and berry flavors is bright and ready to enjoy. Give the pronunciation (Fresh-Eh-Net) and the wine a try!
The Freixenet Cordon Rosado Brut begins with aromas of ripe strawberry, cherry and floral notes. The wine tastes crisp and clean with a good amount of sweetness. The predominant flavors are cherry, citrus, and a little peach and pomegranate. The wine finishes with sweet and tart fruit intermingling with a little minerality and frothy bubbles. Quite nice and another good choice for your Holiday table!
