D.O. Cava (Catalonia)
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.
