This kosher "Excelencia" offering from Freixenet is the latest in a long lineage of Brut style Cavas from one of the oldest sparkling wine houses in the world. Backed by four generations of sparkling wine-making experience, we have crafted a dry bubbly in the traditional method that will rise to any occasion, showing the finesse of a high quality sparkling wine while keeping in step with Jewish dietary law. For this cuvee, only the finest white grapes were selected in order to deliver a wine of surprising complexity. The grapes are gently pressed, and only the very first pressing goes into the 15 month aging process, esulting in the fruity and floral notes that define this Cava.
Gabriel Geller: Straw in color. The nose is very nice with notes of citrus rind, orange blossom and tart apples. Medium to full-bodied with medium mousse. Flavors of fresh apples, tangerines, chalk, a hint of toasted bread and orange peels with medium acidity and good length on the finish. Great value, good complexity and great QPR. Jay Buchsbaum:Rich color with medium bubbles. Excellent flavor, full
nose, a real crowd pleaser. Quite good value. Excellent “Excelencia”. Flavorful and new world fruit forward style.
Pale yellow with touches of green. Very fine, persistent mousse. Intense aromas of ripe pear and green apple evolve and combine with the delicacy of white flower petals on the nose. On the palate, it is refreshing, with a crisp acidity balancing long and elegant floral flavours.
