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.
Winery Tasting Note: On the nose, the 2017 Z Cuvée is deliciously fragrant, reminiscent of a fresh basket of Rainier cherries and balanced by a secondary layer of a well-weathered cedar cigar box. Upon first sip, the front palate is immediately refreshed and invigorated with dried goji berry flavors. As the acidity splays across the front of the tongue, it is curbed by the maturation of the rounded tannins. The finish is curtailed and taut, though appropriately adorned with enough juicy berry to beckon you back to the glass.
