Segura Viudas hand crafts distinctive, artisan méthode champenoise sparkling wines according to Cava traditions begun over 100 years ago. Steeped in rich Spanish heritage and situated on an estate that dates to the 11th century, Segura Viudas draws on this legacy, blending it with modern winemaking to create sophisticated yet approachable Cavas. The Segura Viudas wines come from the renowned Penedès region of Spain just outside of Barcelona. The ARIA line spotlights select vineyards, the romance that old-vine Parellada can produce, and low fermentation temperatures yielding delicacy, aroma and the signature grace of cuvées.
ARIA Estate Brut is dry, lively and refreshing, appropriate for any occasion. Its flavor is dominated by fresh pineapple, almonds, honey and straw, with hints of pears and fresh bread.
As a Reserva Cava with long aging on the lees, this is a perfect match for grilled poultry. It is also ideal with shellfish and white fish. A great accompaniment with mild cheeses such as Gouda, and Jamon Serrano.
