Segura Viudas - Spanish Cava

Segura Viudas Brut

Segura Viudas Brut Reserva


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
Aromas are of white fruits, citrus, tropical fruits, and light floral notes. The palate is exquisite, complex and full of flavor, with good acidity and notes of lime and pineapple. It is dry and long on the finish.

Sommelier's Recommendation
Brut is ideal to start a meal, or a loyal companion to pasta dishes. It can be served with soft cheeses like Brie, pizza, grilled chicken or prawns.
