Segura Viudas Brut Reserva Heredad
Reserva Heredad was created to express style. It is made with the objective of offering an elegant, versatile Cava. To do this, the house selects 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.
On the eye: Straw yellow in color, with a small, fine, plentiful mousse.
On the nose: The opening aromas are of the ageing on lees, lightly smokey, with touches of biscuit or bread, which are followed by hints of honey, fruit and flower petals.
On the palate: 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.
