History of the estate (manor) goes back to 1724. Vendrell family has equally long winemaking history working for others. From 2009 father (famous Cava expert) & son finally realized their dream in creating the ultimate cava.
“50% Xarello, 30% Macabeo, 20% Parellada. A crisp and clean aroma of bright citrus and lime, with elegant brioche and hazelnut characters. The complex and refined palate is beautifully balanced with tropical fruit, candied lemon, zest and a hint of bitters that does not overpower the fruit. The lingering finish holds biscotti on the length.” 95p (Decanter'16).Zero dosage.
