Fruitiness, freshness and complexity are the three principal defining characteristics of Segura Viudas Brut Reserva. The fruit and the freshness stem from the meticulous care with which we handle our grapes. These are all picked by hand and brought to the winery in 25kg capacity self draining plastic boxes to prevent grape damage, and the juice possibly oxidising, which would lead to a loss of freshness. The complexity comes from a very special technique, which involves autolysis of the yeast cells in the base wine for 3 months before bottling, and a second autolysis of the yeast cells for a minimum of 15 months ageing in bottle.
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 flavour, 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.
