This sparkling wine is for those that like it ”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.

Wine Spectator 84 points - 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. (Jul 31 2007)
