National Rosé Day is Saturday, June 12, and Freixenet would love you to pour glasses of its three different Rosé varietals:
The Cordon Negro Rosé (SRP – $3 for 187mL, $8 for 375mL and $13 for 750mL) is a Spanish style sparkling for the Rosé drinker who prefers a drier wine. With aromatic notes of fresh bay leaves and rich florals, the light and soft flavor offers hints of berry as well as exotic grenadine, dried figs and dates from the Trepat grape.
For the trendier Rosé fanatic, there’s the Italian Rosé (SRP – $4 for 187mL and $18 for 750mL) in a diamantine bottle. Sweeter on the palate, this Rosé offers tastes of red fruits and an alluring fruity aroma, with a base of white flowers and apple.
Those forgoing alcohol can still take part in the celebration with the Alcohol-Removed Sparkling Rosé (SRP – $12 for 750mL), a fruity and fizzy “wine” made with 0% alcohol and 100% celebration that offers notes of florals, raspberry, strawberry and tropical fruits.
Best served chilled, all three are designed to make this wine holiday a bubbly experience.
