Segura Viudas Heredad Reserva Cava Brut
This Cava defines elegant refreshment, even in its presentation. Stylish, top of the range Cava.
Yellow gold in colour, with a small, fine, plentiful mousse. The opening aromas are complex, 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 flavour, with dried fruits, but very elegant, giving the drinker a delightful sense of richness.
SOMMELIER’S RECOMMENDATION This is a perfect companion to truffle influenced dishes, such as truffle oil drizzled pastas. White fish – sole or monkfish à la meunière, 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. Other exquisite plates to match with: Oysters with mango, lime and fish roe, Vegan “clam” chowder, Roasted chicken with plums and onions.

Reserva Heredad was created to express style, in the world of top of the range sparkling wines. We make it with the objective of offering an elegant, versatile Cava. To do this, we select only the very best wines from each vintage, which will then age in bottle, in contact with the lees, for more than 24 months. This ageing ends when the winery expert gives every bottle the magic touch with the last poignettage or shake of the wrist, which intensifies the contact of the lees with the wine, and creates a more complex bouquet.
The blend for Reserva Heredad is made up of nine different wines, each one vinified in separate tanks. The magic of the blend is in ensuring that each one lends its own touch of character to the whole. Macabeo is the dominant grape in Reserva Heredad (75%), contributing acidity and freshness. It also allows the wine to age well, during the 24 months or more that it will be in contact with the lees. Chardonnay completes the blend.
Cava is a traditional method sparkling wine which requires time and skill- the second fermentation that creates the bubbles takes place in the bottle whilst it is resting in the winery. The riddling or turning of all the bottles of Reserva Heredad is done by hand and in pupitres.
