Segura Viudus Heredad Brut Cava

Segura Viudas Reserva Heredad is a limited production méthode champenoise wine originally reserved for members of the Segura family and their friends. Reserva Heredad is made exclusively from grapes grown in the estate's vineyards at Torrelavit in the Alt Penedès region of Spain. Only the first pressing of the Macabeo and Parellada grapes goes into the making of the cuvée. The yeast is added and the wine is allowed to develop in the bottle for up to four years.

Winemaker's Notes
Straw yellow in colour, with a small, fine, plentiful mousse. The opening aromas are of the aging on lees, lightly smokey, with touches of biscuit or bread, which are followed by hints of honey, fruit and flower petals. The palate is excellent, fruity and full of flavor, with dried fruits from the lees ageing, but very elegant, giving the drinker a delightful sense of abundance.

Sommelier's Recommendation
This Cava defines elegant refreshment, even in its presentation. It is a perfect companion to truffle influenced dishes, such as truffle oil drizzled pastas. White fish – sole or monkfish à la meuniére, or even traditional Mediterranean casseroles are perfect companions, as are cooked or cured hams, and soft white cheeses such as brie or camembert. It marries perfectly with meat dishes, such as fillet of venison slow braised in a shallot sauce.

3 STARS, EXCELLENT, RECOMMENDED
"After four years of secondary fermentation, this limitedrelease wine develops toasted brioche qualities that marry well with the apple and quince notes through the smooth, spicy finish."

92 POINTS
"A selection of macabeo and parellada grown at estate vineyards in the Alt Penedés, Reserva Heredad is a complex and heady Cava that delivers on its richness without sweetness. Its potent depth of flavor has a smoky minerality and fresh apple-skin notes. This is full and meaty enough to serve with roast chicken or albóndigas de ternera (veal meatballs)." - Wine and Spirits, June, 2011
