When cava is as good as this, it makes me wonder why we don’t appreciate it more. Traditional method fizz made from local Spanish grapes by the Segura Viudas winery for a mouthwatering mix of Granny Smiths and lemon zest, with a little toastiness from bottle ageing. Susy Atkins, The Daily Telegraph, 25th August 2021
Heavenly with a creamy, biscuity character.
A blend of macabeo, parellada and xarello grapes, this vivacious cava is a pleasure to drink and you can’t fault the price either. Produced by the Segura Viudas estate, it’s dry and full flavoured, with a fine mousse and a nutty, biscuity backbone.
The phrase ‘reassuringly expensive’ can make us wary of bargains. It really shouldn’t. Here you have all the fruit complexity and biscuit aromas of a wine at at least twice the price, as well as the ‘mouth-ﬁlling perfume’ of ﬁne ﬁzz for just over a tenner. A must-buy.
‘…at the cheaper end, a delightful own-label cava (well done Tanners).’
‘Really impressive traditional-method Spanish fizz made from the three classic Cava grape varieties (i.e., no Chardonnay). Beguiling creamy texture with red apple, pear and soft citrus freshness. Great value. 12%’
I wrote this wine up three years ago, and I am thrilled to report it is still an absolute stunner! Super-chic in its racing green livery, this is a fine, long, elegant sparkler and it is a real steal at a tenner. If you are looking to save a few quid but drink a classy, traditional method wine, then this is it.
