Just outside Barcelona, deep in the valleys of Cava country, lies a secret.
A true treasure of a winery dating back to the 11th century. A treasure called Segura Viudas.
This is not a winery that wants to be famous. It is not a winery that wants to be a star. It just wants to stay true to its spirit of making wonderful sparkling wine. Wine that’s a little secret waiting to be discovered. A secret best shared.
Produced with the aid of natural yeasts that are ‘ambient’ in the winery, the Cavas of Segura Viudas are allowed to rest for just that little bit longer than others – on lees.
Gabriel Suberviola, the head wine-maker and passionate advocate of the independent Segura Viudas spirit, says his winemakers first and foremost create Cava they themselves like to drink. And it seems wine lovers around the world share their taste.
Segura Viudas Cava is made in the same traditional method of Champagne, from Spain’s indigenous Macabeo, Xarello and Parellada grape varieties. Segura Viudas’ sparkling wine styles range in style and price from everyday cavas to the superlative Reserva Heredad, which is presented in a luxurious pewter clad bottle, based on an 11th Century original.
Crush Fine Wines is delighted to partner with Segura Viudas and to represent its range of fine Spanish Sparkling Cava’s. The range includes the widely appealing; fruity and yet dry Aria Brut Non-Vintage, the complex and fuller flavoured Vintage Brut Cava and the elegant and beautifully crafted Reserva Heredad NV – which uses only the best parcels of hand-picked Macabeo and Parellada aged for up to 30 months on tirage.
We are also proud to present a small range of still wines to the Australian market for the first time.
These include the Segura Viudas Garnaxta (Grenache) and Rosat (Rose). The Garnaxta is a fresh and medium bodied red with plenty of ripe primary black fruits and some spicy and liquorice notes. A perfect accompaniment with lighter meat dishes. The Rosat is made from the free run juice of both Tempranillo and Merlot. This wine has plenty of fresh ripe fruit flavours (Peach and Strawberries) and a dry finish and will suit many cuisines or stand alone as a refreshing aperitif.
