Freixenet Spumante NV
Freixenet produces only méthode champenoise sparkling wines. The wine goes through two fermentations with the second fermentation taking place in the bottle. Freixenet Spumante is aged up to 18 months in a cave. This méthode champenoise technique mellows the wine naturally, so it is smoother, without need of such a high dose of sugar, typical of Spumantes. Spumante is a blend of three white Spanish grape varieties called Macabeo (50%), Xarel-lo (35%) and Malvasia (15%). Macabeo produces a fairly light but fruity, aromatic wine of medium-high acidity – characteristics crucial to the production of sparkling wine. It is also an important grape in the aging process because its must does not readily oxidize. Xarel-lo yields a robust, high-acid wine and contributes power and depth. Malvasia (15%) gives the wine its touch of sweetness.
External Reviews for Freixenet Spumante
Frankly sweet and similar to Moscato d'Asti, this is fresh and grapey. Try on its own or with fresh fruit desserts. Drink now. -BS Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from in Spain. N.V. Freixenet Spumante 750ml
Somewhat flowery and fruity on the nose, but not very precise or solid. Like the name says, this wine is dosed sweet, and that sugar comes on strong on the midpalate. A bit scratchy and sugary, but still well made and upright.
