Segura Viudas Grand Cuvee Reserva 2011

Hailing from Torrelavit in the Penedes region, just outside Barcelona. A blend of traditional Spanish varieties – 85% Macabeo and Parellada with 15% traditional sparkling varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Made using the Methode Traditionelle, aged on lees for 15 months, with dosage of 6 g/l.

Toast, a little stonefruit, pithy citrus. The palate deviates from that pattern, with tropical hints of kimquat, lime marmalade and segueing to a little bitter note that gives the sense of additional depth.

Good persistence of flavour, just lacks a little finesse, but there's no doubting the quality:price ratio. 90

Tasted on: Wednesday 21st October, a Root day
Source: Sample
Price: $25
