Segura Viudas Brut Rosado

segura viudas

This is a real classic that I have recommended to so many people. It used to be available at the Swedish monopoly on the shelf for many years but unfortunately no longer. It has really been one of those cavas I have “fallen back on” and often had some in my cellar “just in case” you know.

It is a very nice, easy rosé that suits most people it seems and it still has character in my opinion. It is made from 90% trepat and 10% garnacha, which makes it fruity, but not in that strawberry/pinot way, if you know what I mean. This fruitiness is more of a cherry, cranberry, raspberry style which I like. The mousse is good and it is an overall nice and likable rosé. Here in Sweden it costs 89:- and you have to order it (nr 7779) at the monopoly. But I think it is definitely worth it, if you what something good but not very complicated for a low price, to just pop when you feel like it.

I admit CavaTV is put on ice…

I’m sorry to say that CavaTV was abit more than I could handle at the moment. It is almost One year since I started and when I found ot I was pregnant again, it all just was too much to handle. Constantly tired, 100% work, a 1,5 yearold at home, and all the cava stuff. I don’t have to explain but I want too.

I will do my very best to keep up my “Cava Tips” here on the blog instead! Starting as I have told you before with the selection awalible at our swedish monopoly. But I will every now and then do them also in english since I know that you might be interested too.

So with this I will try to centre my eforts and really get it done instead and then we will see what happens with CavaTV in the future. 🙂
