Segura Viudas Brut Reserva, created from a blend of reserve and non-vintage wines, is clean and delicate, yet rich in flavor. A cuvée of Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo grapes grown in the renowned Alt Penedès region of Spain, the wine is vinified according to méthode champenoise technique and is aged in the bottle for up to three years.
The prime feature of Brut Reserva Segura Viudas is its elegant and persistent mousse. The aromas are of white fruits, citrus and tropical fruits, and light floral notes. The palate is exquisite, complex and full of flavor, with good acidity and notes of lime and pineapple. It is dry and long on the finish.
An ideal Cava to start a meal, or a loyal companion to preserved sea foods, (clams, winkles, anchovies), pasta dishes such as noodles with seafood sprinkled with arbequina extra virgin olive oil, or even a warm quail salad. It is perfectly at home with soft milk cheeses or a mild Brie, thanks to its light dosage level of 9 grams of sugar.
Blend: 50% Macabeo, 35% Parellada, 15% Xarel-lo
Total Acidity: 3.95 g/L
Dosage: 9 g/L
