Product Description

Segura Viudas Reserva Heredad (Estate) is a limited production méthode champenoise wine originally made for members of the Segura Viudas family and their friends, hence the name. Reserva Heredad is made exclusively from the best grapes grown in Segura Viudas vineyards at Sant Sadurní dAnoia in the Penedès region of Spain. Only the first pressing of the Macabeo and Parellada grapes goes into the making of the cuvée. The yeast is added and the wine is allowed to develop in the bottle for a minimum of five years. Medium-bodied and mellow with a perfumed bouquet, character, and depth. This wine beholds a good fruit intensity on the palate and a long and slightly yeasty finish. Reserva Heredad comes in a hand-blown bottle with a slender, tapered neck. The bottle is emblazoned with a silvery metal Segura Viudas crest and the base of the bottle rests in a metal coaster inscribed with grapes.

Varietal: Brut

Region: Spain

Region Description:

This mountainous country possesses more vineyard land than any other country on earth, and ranks third in wine production after France and Italy. Spain is best known for its red Riojas and its Sherries, however other wines and regions are quickly gaining notoriety. Like France, Spain divides wine into categories; table wine at the bottom level and quality wine at the top, with a large emphasis on geographical origin. VdM (Vino de Mesa) is a basic table wine. VC (Vino Comarcal) wines are a level up. VdlT (Vino de la Tierra) refers to one of the country’s 25 distinct regions, and each wine possesses a local character. At the top level, only about fifty wines are considered DO (Denominacion de Origen). These wines come from the best-known regions and are the equivalent of France’s Appellation Contrôlée. DOC (Denominacion de Origen Calificada) is reserved for wines that adhere to the most stringent regulations. So far, Rioja is the only wine to gain the Calificada classification.
