Estate: Segura Viudas was founded in 1954 and is located in the Penedes region of northeastern Spain. The estate is one of the leading producers of sparkling wine in Spain, and is “noted for its high production standards of traditional Methode Champenoise”. The Brut Cava has gained a reputation as a consistent and reliable “best buy”.
Philosophy: To “create sophisticated yet approachable cavas for all occasions”, with 3 defining characteristics; “fruit, freshness and complexity”.
Winemaking: Grapes are hand harvested and transported to the winery in small containers to ensure they arrive in prime condition. Vinified in the méthode champenoise technique, then aged in the bottle for up to 2 years in their underground cave.
Tasting Notes: Light gold in colour with light aromas of apple, white flowers and minerals. Simple and easy going, with subtle apple and melon notes that join diminutive, fizzy bubbles, whilst light citrus zest compliments the dry finish.
Blend of Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel [I could not verify varietal percentages.]
