Yesterday we were seven friends who got together to try Freixenet dry supply available at the monopoly in Sweden. It was not an easy task, but together we came up with some good aroma and flavor descriptions. For each tasting I host, I am reminded of the incredible variety of flavor references we carry with us and how our brains make parallels to previously experienced smells and flavors when we put our noses in a glass of wine. It is a fantastic experience every time. Since our ways to describe a smell or taste is so wonderfully different, you always learn new things when you taste together with friends. To try wine in small groups where you can have a dialogue is really the most rewarding ways to explore wine in my opinion.
We all thought that Freixenet dry cavas generally are very well made, fruity with nice acidity, and that the portfolio is very divers which we really liked. I will compile our test results and provide some tips and ideas about the wines we tried, for many of the wines are very well priced.
I’m extremely happy with our tasting and are already looking forward to the next, which I am now planing for.
Until then, I think you should celebrate that the spring is here with a little fizz. Go to your local store and buy something that you never tried before, put it on ice for a while. And when you drink it think about what you appreciate with just this wine. (But don’t think so much that you forget to enjoy it!)
Here’s to spring!
