Production: Organic Wine sourced from a selection of well-known local varieties of grapes picked manually from various different plots located within the Denomination of Origin Montsant. The Grenache comes from 2 plots located around the villages of Marçà and Falset, the first are old vines of more than 70 years old located in the warmest part of the DO. The second plot, planted with 25 years old Grenache and Macabeo vines, is located in the area of Falset a much fresher zone where the grapes obtain good acidity and lower pH. to compensate for the warmth and density of the first plot. The other 2 vineyards of 70 years old Macabeo vines are located in cooler areas where the grapes are late-comers. The Alcoholic fermentation took place in wood using natural yeast and during the time of 10 months!. Afterwards 40% of the wine has aged between 6 to 9 months in French Oak, 30% in a used Foudre and the other 30% in a Clay Amphora Vase.
Venus la Universal is a small winery located in the locality of Falset, it belongs to the young and super talented enologist couple Sara Perez and her husband Rene Barbier Jr. making a very special team with plenty of experience, energy and talent. All the wines are now produced from Ecological Agriculture.
Tasting Notes: Fresh and elegant wine with a Mediterranean character. On the nose shows good minerality, white fruit and tropical fruit aromas with Mediterranean herbs and toasted notes. Attractively gently mineral, good, round fruit and balancing acidity on the palate, very harmonious with a nice long dry finish.
Notes: This wine is a very flavoursome wine that drinks beautifully now and through 2024.
