Segura Viudas Brut Reserva is a complex cava noted for its elegant finesse. With balanced acidity, this crisp sparkling wine is ideal to enjoy as an apértif and as a complement to any occasion.
Segura Viudas crafts artisanal cava in the centuries-old traditional method. Hand-picked, indigenous grapes and a refine aging process create cavas that are sophisticated, yet approachable.
The Segura Viudas Brut Reserva Cava begins with an inviting aroma of lemon, lime, nectarine, pear and apple plus some floral notes and a touch of fresh baked bread.
Taking a sip reveals a rich, juicy, crisp and very tasty wine. It features similar flavors to the nose with more apple in the mouth and a touch of honey. There are also some nice toasty, nutty notes to round things out. Add to that some beautiful fine bubbles and you've got a winner. It may lack the complexity of some others, but it's really fabulous at this low price.
It ends with a crisp, dry and lingering finish.
