From The Winery:
Fruitiness, freshness and complexity are the three principal defining characteristics of Segura Viudas Brut. The fruit and the freshness stem from the meticulous care with which we handle our grapes. The complexity comes from a very special technique, which involves autolysis of the yeast cells in the base wine for 3 months before bottling, and a second autolysis of the yeast cells for a minimum of 12 months ageing in bottle.
The prime feature of Brut Segura Viudas is its elegant and persistent mousse. The aromas are of white fruits, citrus and tropical fruits, and light floral notes. The palate is exquisite, complex and full of flavour, with good acidity and notes of lime and pineapple. It is dry and long on the finish. - Manel Quintana, Winemaker
"As its bubbles are fine and delicate it is an ideal cava to start a meal, or a loyal companion to preserved sea foods, (clams, winkles, anchovies), pasta dishes such as noodles with seafood sprinkled with arbequina extra virgin olive oil, or even a warm quail salad. It is perfectly at home with soft milk cheeses or a mild Brie, thanks to its light dosage level of 9 grams of sugar. Exquisite plates to match with:
- Creamy omelette with blue cheese, dates, and walnuts
- Porcini mushroom risotto
- Monkfish stew with clams and peas." - Chiara Gai Sanchez - Juan Muñoz, Sommeliers
