Freixenet Cordon Rosado Gran Selección Cava

Bubbly’s take

Well, well, well… we made good on our pledge (below) and we found another great Freixenet to feature – this time it’s a rosé Cava. We were completely surprised by this lovely sparkling wine – the Rosado is surprisingly fruity and refreshing. It bears a dry yet lilting flavour, paying credence to its blend of Terpat and Garnache grapes. The Rosado looks great, it tastes great and it’s a great idea to have a bottle of this ready and chilled on a warm summer day. A pleasant and very satisfying addition to the Freixenet collection.

Would go well with

Fish. Of course, we think the Rosado could also be enjoyed by itself on a sunny afternoon or evening. The depth and breadth of the wine’s flavour mean there is plenty to be explored. That said, we can’t help but feel this Cava would be best-placed alongside tapas – we’re thinking croquettes, tostadas, padron peppers, manchego and patatas bravas!

Tanners Brut Cava

Bubbly’s take

We feel this one could turn into one of our Cava staples. Tanners are are a well-established and -versed provincial wine merchants, with an intriguing history and excellent selection of wines. They offer this signature Cava under their name and with good reason. It is a strong and frothy wine, with a well-balanced flavour. We would see this as one of our “go-to” sparklings that we enjoy when we just can’t decide what to have. It is a characteristic Spanish Cava rightly labelled by an esteemed British wine merchant.

Would go well with

Most things. We had this on one of our homemade pizza nights so we’re thinking it makes good pairing with Mediterranean dishes.
