From the bottle:
"Segura Viudas Brut Reserva is a choice, vibrant cava noted for its balance and elegant finesse. This sparkling wine is sublime as an apértif or accompaniment for any meal or celebration.The Segura Viudas Brut Reserva begins with aromas of pear, fresh baked bread, and floral notes. The wine tastes of pear, citrus zest, lemon and green apple. This wine has a really nice acidity and a good crispness and juiciness to it. The Segura Viudas finishes with lemon zest plus a little minerality that turns into lingering honey notes. Another nice sparkling wine for your holiday table!
Segura Viudas handcrafts each cava inspired by the centuries-old traditional method. Today, Segura Viudas is recognized as one of Spain's premier producers of artisan cava.
