Segura Viudas Reserva Heredad
Reserva Heredad is the estate’s crown jewel—our tête de cuvée—a Cava blended from just Macabeo and Parellada that enjoys aging on the lees for 30 months or longer and riddling by hand.
Blend of 75% Macabeo; 25% Chardonnay
From grape to glass it takes three years to produce a bottle of Reserva Heredad. The grapes are 100% hand harvested and transported to the winery in 25kg boxes to prevent oxidation. The must comes from the free run juice which is the lightest pressing of the grapes. The first fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled low temperature between 57 and 61°F, to retain the primary aromas of the grapes. The blend is made up of nine different wines, each one vinified in separate tanks. Macabeo is the dominant grape in Reserva Heredad, contributing acidity and freshness. It also allows the wine to age well, during the 30 plus months it is in contact with the lees. Both the first and the second fermentations are carried out using our own selected yeast strains. These give structure, softness on the palate, more complex aromas of honey, dried fruit, and flowers. The riddling or turning of all the bottles of Reserva Heredad is done by hand.
The wine is aged 30+ months.
Lightly smoky opening aromas with touches of biscuit and hints of honey and flower petals.
The palate is excellent, fruity, and full of flavor, delivering a delightful sense of abundance.
Pairs well with: creamy true pasta and filet mignon. Also stunning as a holiday gift.
