"Dry apple and crisp citrus aromas come with a touch of sweet grass. It has lively lemon-lime and apple flavors, and it seems to have been dosed on the sweeter side of extra dry. Overall, it's fruity, friendly and likeable."

"Clean, fruity and solid smelling, with a fresh, lightweight palate housing flavors of ginger, lime, lemongrass and powdered sugar. Easy on the finish. Textbook quaffing Cava if you like it a little sweet."

"Fresh and full of lime on the nose, and overall this is simple, smooth and gives you little reason to worry or fuss. The palate is smooth,creamy and a little low on acids, thus the lemon-lime and melon flavors have a fullness that's sweet and good."

"For those looking for a little less oak, we recommend the Segura Viudas Extra Dry, which has just the slightest bit of sweetness alongside notes of cream and lemon. It has softer mineral flavors than other wines from this producer, and would definitely be nice with pre-dinner snacks or a Valentine's Day brunch. For eight bucks, you could certainly do worse."

"Better than your average, run-of-the mill Extra Dry. The nose deals mellow apple and green-herb aromas, while the palate has a level of sweetness that doesn't bog things down. Kind flavors of ripe apple, melon and spice lead to a finish that flows nicely."
