Whilst the origins of viticulture at Can Vendrell go back to the middle ages, it was not until 1903 that the Albet family established itself... (more...) at the estate. Joan Albet i Rovirosa came to Can Vendrell to oversee the replanting of the estate after the Phylloxera plague. This process involved planting American rootstock and grafting the desired variety onto that rootstock. After replanting the vineyards he stayed on as manager of the 210 hectare estate of which 90 hectares were vineyards.
Can Vendrell Cava Reserva - N.V.
March 09, 2006
Dry to the taste and features aromas and flavors of crisp green apple, honey, melon and hay. Nuances of honeysuckle and citrus squirt hover underneath. A well made Cava that's super balanced and goes down easily - perhaps too easily!
