Segura Viudas - Spanish Cava

Segura Viudas Extra Dry

Segura Viudas Extra Dry

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
Good intensity on the nose with fruity and floral notes well integrated with yeasty aromas, developed during the aging time in bottle. The palate is fruity and elegant, with a touch of sweetness and acidity making it the ideal companion to many desserts. A fruity and long finish.

Sommelier's Recommendation
The Extra Dry is equally well-suited to oysters, spicy foods, and chutneys. It is also perfect with desserts.

"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."
