Segura Viudas - Spanish Cava

Segura Viudas Brut RosÉ

Segura Viudas Brut Rosé

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. Extraordinary wines built for everyday consumption, our flagship line includes Brut and Extra Dry, fruity and aromatic cuvées resulting from an elevated percentage of Macabeo, and the dry, berry-driven Brut Rosé.

Winemaker's Notes
Bright, light strawberry pink, with hints of salmon and a pale rim. A fine, abundant and consistent mousse, rising to a good crown. Youthful fruit aromas of strawberry, redcurrant and grenadine. Refreshing on the palate, full of cherry fruit and a light acidity. A soft finish on the back of the palate gives a lovely approachable balance to this very drinkable Cava.

Sommelier's Recommendation
It is perfect with most appetizers. It is ideal with fish like salmon or grilled tuna where it compliments both in color and flavor. For the cheese course try it with creamy cheeses such as Brie.

BEST BUY
"Nectarine and orange peel are the lead aromas on this everyday, entirely serviceable Cava. A fresh, juicy, citrusy mouthfeel creats a nest for citrus flavors, grapefruit and orange in particular, to do their thing before finishing slightly bitter and pithy."
