Segura Viudas Brut Reserva ($10)
Like all cavas, this earthy, citrus-tinged sparkling wine is a blend of the regional Spanish grapes Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo. Made in the same way as Champagne (i.e., with the secondary fermentation that produces the carbonation occurring in the bottle), it’s one of several good-quality Cavas from Segura Viudas, which started producing sparkling wines at the end of the 19th century.
