Based in Catalonia, spain and founded in the 19th century, Freixenet is still a family business. Freixenet has grown to become one of the world’s leading producers of both still and sparkling wine with winery estates worldwide. Freixenet has now extended its expertise and globally-renowned name to Prosecco.
ONIN London was sent a bottle of Freixenet Prosecco and we loved it. Made from the finest Glera grapes in Italy’s Prosecco region of Veneto, Freixenet Prosecco is definitely something special. The gorgeous bottle is reminiscent of 1920’s crystal glasses and we almost didn’t want to open the bottle. It’s definitely a bottle of Prosecco you want to put on display. But alas the time had come to crack the bottle open to celebrate friendship and finishing a long week at work.
The tasting notes of Freixenet Prosecco are described as ‘golden straw with lively effervescence and fresh aromas of citrus, apple and flowers. Clean and fresh on the palate with tones of ripe lemon, green apple and grapefruit. The finish is light and fresh’.
We’d have to agree with them. The flavour was crisp, light and sweet. It’s definitely now one of my favourite bottles of Prosecco. Freixenet is extremely easy to drink and while we’re not promoting irresponsible drinking… don’t be surprised if you end up wishing you’d bought two bottles.
We we’re surprised to find that Freixenet is priced at only £12. So top quality at an extremely decent price. It can be purchased from https://www.ocado.com/webshop/product/Freixenet-Prosecco-DOC/367512011?dnr=y and Tesco. We’re off to purchase some more now.
