Buy Freixenet Negro X-Dry
This sparkling wine is for those that like it ̶1;not too dry”. On the palate it’s earthy and fruity with an essence of peach, melon and candied citrus flavors, culminating in a long, flavorful and smooth finish. It is excellent by itself and also pairs well with spicy cuisine.
Wine Enthusiast 88 points - One of my personal favorites among the giant collection of Freixenet cavas is the extra dry, which isn’t dry in the least. Just the opposite, it’s loaded with sweet apple and apricot aromas along with peach, melon and candied citrus flavors. Best of all, it maintains its poise while never falling toward cloying or sappy.
Lively and relatively dry, with honey and apple flavors, on a moderately firm structure. Drink now. –BS
Flavors of ginger, honey and orange peel are backed by a good vein of acidity in this refreshing, well-balanced bubbly. Drink now. 100,000 cases imported. (Dec 15 2002)

Producer
Backed by over 150 years of family-owned wine expertise, Freixenet’s exquisite cavas, artfully produced in the methode champenoise tradition, are Spanish sparkling wines of distinction that began their story with love. The romantic union of two of Spain’s oldest winemaking families began with a wedding that also brought the wineries under one roof as a business. Prospering through all of life’s joys, and enduring its sorrows, the Freixenet winery transformed its small start into a name known around the world. Gracefully gathering compliments, awards, and millions of cava fans, Freixenet applies the highest standards in winemaking for consistent quality and value. The third and fourth generations of the Ferrer family continue to attend to all the details that make their cavas the world’s preferred sparkling wines.
