Segura Viudas is awarded 3 medals at Decanter World Wine Awards

 

  • Segura Viudas stands out among more than 16,500 wines and sparklings from the main wine-producing regions of the world

At Segura Viudas we are proud to have been awarded three medals at the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards 2020. Our award-winning cavas have been Segura Viudas Brut Reserva, which has received a silver medal; and Segura Viudas Reserva Heredad and Segura Viudas Brut Rosé, who have obtained a bronze medal. The success in this distinguished international contest is a new demonstration of the high quality of our cavas.

Fruit, freshness and complexity are the three main virtues that define Segura Viudas Brut Reserva and that have earned it the silver medal. This cava is made from hand harvested grapes, brought to the winery in 25 kilo capacity boxes to avoid damage to the grapes’ integrity.

For its part, Reserva Heredad is an elegant and versatile cava made with the best wines of each vintage that will later age in the bottle in contact with their lees for more than 24 months. Finally, Segura Viudas Brut Rosé stands out for its red berries aromas and is made from the Trepat grape variety. At Segura Viudas we were a pioneer winery in the recovery of this varietal.

To determine the still and sparkling wines awarded at this edition of Decanter World Wine Awards, 116 experts - including 37 Masters of Wine and 9 Master Sommeliers - have conducted blind tastings of 16,518 wines for 28 consecutive days under the strictest safety and hygiene measures. The reputed British publication Decanter is, since its founding in 1975, a leading publication in the wine segment worldwide, with an audience in almost 100 countries.
