Characteristics of Segura Viudas Brut Vintage Gran Reserva
Brut Vintage Gran Reserva is a cava Brut Nature de la D.O. Cava prepared by Segura Viudas. It is a blend of the Macabeo (67%) and Parellada (33%) varieties.
The must for making this cava comes from the most gentle pressing of the grapes. Using only half the must, known as wort flower, the wine is more aromatic and delicate.
The blend comes from ten different wines from the two varieties. These are fermented separately at a temperature between 14º and 16º in order to obtain maximum expression.
Fermentation takes place with selected yeasts from the same vineyards. This cava ages with its lees for at least 36 months.
Finally, the liquor is made with white wine which has fermented for five months in American and French oak barrels. This expedition liqueur carries no added sugar, which makes this be a Brut Nature Cava.
Segura Viudas has created one of the most awarded brands in national and international tastings thanks to its willingness to preserve biodiversity through sustainable viticulture and respect for tradition, combined with the desire for innovation.

SightA pretty, pale straw yellow colour with light gold reflections. Fine bubbles highlight its radiance from where they start up to their arrival on the surface, where they form a light crown. NoseMedium-high intensity, with aromas of ripe white fruit and citrus touches standing out on a background of dried fruit and pastries. TasteNice, smooth attack, good development in the mouth. Very well integrated fizziness. A lively acidity makes this cava very fresh. The notes from its ageing melt with notes of ripe fruit and dried fruit. Its finish is broad, fruity and complex.
Cava was born under the constant shadow of its French counterpart, Champagne. However, produced over 1,200km away and a gap of over 100 years, Cava was always going to be a completely different product, even if produced using the same method and and sometimes with the same varieties. Firstly the climate and soil have a profound impact on the yields, while the plant strains that thrive here and completely different to those in the Champagne region. Fortunately, as more winemakers are becoming convinced of this, they are producing Cavas with their own personality, showing off the art of the second fermentation in the bottle like no other wine region in the world.
