"Apple and peach aromas come with a hint of lime. This is clean and feels good on the palate, where apple, peach and nectarine flavors lead to a straight-ahead finish that feels right."
- Wine Enthusiast, November 2013 Download PDF

"Floral, citrus, honey, and bread dough aromas are even-tempered and fairly attractive. Citrus and tart peach start the palate with a touch of bread dough, and later melon and lime come into the picture. This is quite refreshing, well made, and brighter than your typical Cava. For the price, it certainly meets expectations and would be great to sip on the deck in the summer or on a balcony overlooking the sea."
- Champagne Warrior, May 2013

WINNER OF THE WINE TRIALS
"This bottle, the upscale cousin of last year's Segura Viudas winner, is fairly subtle for an inexpensive Cava. It refuses to hog the spotlight with intense acidity or bold flavors; instead, it goes for simplicity and food friendliness-something we can definitely appreciate."
- Robin Goldstein, 2011 Download PDF

88 POINTS
"Mineral, lime and crisp apple aromas give it a precise, pure nose. And that same character exists on the palate and finish, where white peach, green banana and melon flavors are full and forward. Shows good concentration and quality."
- Wine Enthusiast Magazine, December 15, 2010 Download PDF

RECOMMENDED
"Segura Viudas Aria is a blend of the first pressings of the traditional Cava grapes: Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo. Macabeo (60%) provides a fine, honeyed aroma; Parellada (20%) lends subtle elegance; and the Xarel- lo (20%) provides the backbone of the cava and gives both body and good acidity."
- Lisa Carley, NY Wine Examiner, June 30, 2010

88 POINTS, BEST BUY
"While the fruit of this wine has a sweet, baked apple flavor, pale yeastiness lends a subtle balance, finishing with a clean, fresh feel. A fine, gentle sparkler for toasts."
