Segura Viudas Gran Cuvée Reserva

Gran Cuvée Reserva is a new challenge for our winemakers. As the main objective, there is the desire to reflect our support to ancient local grapes like Macabeo and Parellada, our most delicate white grapes, and after blending nine different base wines, we add a minor quantity of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to contribute with their personality and good acidity. The final result is a fresh, elegant and complex creation, that will only be made when all the climate, soil and harvest conditions are aligned.

The Gran Cuvée Reserva is aged a minimum of 15 months in contact with the lees, 20 meters below ground and at a constant, natural temperature of between 14 and 16ºC.
