Description: This Cava is a fine balance of northern and southern influences expressed through our Mediterranean heartland, offering us a perfect combination of old vine Macabeo and Parellada which deliver fruit, elegance and finesse, beautifully harnessed with the richness of Chardonnay and the wild berry notes of Pinot Noir. It is a perfect marriage of soils, climates, grape aromatics and a finished wine which has been aged for 15 months in contact with its lees to produce a finished wine which is refreshing and fruity, rich and elegant creating perfect balance between fruit, structure, acidity and alcohol.

Combined: Complex in its harmonies, there is a stunning array of tastes and sensations, which make it a perfect match with all manner of fish dishes, Peruvian and Mexican ceviches from avocado based to highly spicy, soya cuisine, tempura, sauerkraut, braised meats and the most modern Sushi cuisine. Ideal too with sautéed or pickled cèpes, meat carpaccios, wild salmon, aged cheeses, and by no means least virgin olive oil cuisine.

Segura Viudas, Brut Reserva Heredad

reservaheredad95Color: White

Type: Sparkling – Dry

Trademark: Segura Viudas

Blend: 67% Macabeo, 33% Parellada

Location: Torrelavit

Country: Spain

Price: 28 €

Description: Straw yellow in colour, with a small, fine, plentiful mousse. 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. The palate is excellent, fruity and full of flavour, with dried fruits from the lees ageing, but very elegant, giving the drinker a delightful sense of abundance.

Combined: It 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.
