A selection of macabeo and parellada grown at estate vineyards in the Alt Penedes, Reserva Heredad is a complex and heady Cava that delivers on its richness without sweetness. Its potent depth of flavor has a smoky minerality and fresh apple-skin notes.

Wine & Spirits(From 1992 Vintage) This Brut Cava is made up of 50% Macabeo, 35% Parellada, 15% Xarel-lo from the Alt Penedegrave;s region of Spain and made in the megrave;thode traditionnelle. The nose displays plenty of citrus and lemon peel, with a hint of pear as well. The palate consists of creamy lemon custard and toast, with a finish of crisp Granny Smith apples. This is, without a doubt, the best sparkling wine I have ever had for under $10. Segura Viudas continually impresses me with their Cava, and that is why you can always find a bottle in my refrigeratorhellip; because you never know when you may need to celebrate with bubbly. Drink now and oftenhellip; especially with friends.
Wine Enthusiast(From 1992 Vintage) TOP 100 BEST BUYS! – NO. 8 ON THE LIST!“After a soda-like start that may seem aggressive, this one really settles into a groove. The nose blends citrus and wild green-herb aromas, while the palate has perfectly composed orange and peach flavors. The finish is sold and around every turn it holds the road. Great for the price.
