Segura Viudas Brut Vintage Cava Gran Reserva 2014
This is an intense, rich Cava on the palate, perfectly balancing elegant fruit with the fullness of long bottle ageing.
A Cava with a very fine mousse. Intense and complex aromas. There are notes of ripe apple and bright citrus over an elegant backdrop of dried fruits and baked bread coming from its appropriate lees ageing. On the palate it is flavoursome, refreshing and balanced, with good fruit delivery; it has a creamy texture and has the fine finish with the complex flavours of a fine, well aged Cava.
Brut Reserva is only made in certain, very specific vintages, when the base wines are going to be capable of a long period of bottle ageing. Only the very best white wines can withstand more than 40 months of lees ageing. It is, therefore, a “Vintage” Cava in the truest sense, with 100% of the grapes coming from its specified vintage year, and it is not a wine which is created from every harvest. The other distinguishing feature of this Cava is that the shipping liquor is made from wines fermented and aged in oak barrels.
