Characteristics of Venus La Figuera

Venus La Figuera is a red wine made by the Venus La Universal winery using the Garnacha Tinta variety in the D.O. Montsant.

Sara Pérez (Mas Martinet) and René Barbier (Clos Mogador), both children of prestigious Priorat winemaking families, embark on their own adventure in Montsant with Venus La Universal. A project that began in a small, old vineyard plot in 1999 with the aim of restoring the natural balance of the grape using organic methods and optimising resources and energy in vineyards, the winery and logistics. The Venus La Figuera red wine comes from one of the highest plots in the municipality of La Figuera (Tarragona). It consists of vineyards owned by the Cooperative of the same town that Pérez and René can use to make their own wines in exchange for winemaking advice.

The Venus La Figuera Garnacha variety is planted in clay-calcareous soils at an altitude of 600 metres above sea level. Thanks to a Mediterranean climate with continental influences, the grapes ripen over a long period of time which results in a high concentration of sugar. The harvest is carried out manually and the grapes are selected in the vineyard.

The Venus La Figuera grape is processed whole and with some stems. It macerates and ferments with native yeasts for a month in wooden vats and open 500-litre barrels. It then ages in amphorae for 18 months.

Venus La Figuera is a red wine that expresses the Garnacha variety in its most natural form.

Tasting notes Venus La Figuera

Venus de La Figuera 2016 is a red wine that offers the expressiveness of red fruits on the nose, mainly cherries, accompanied by a subtle mineral and balsamic touch. On the palate it is elegant, with the fruit returning to give the most delicate and fine side of a great Garnacha, with light acidity and citrus freshness.
Venus La Figuera 2015 is a concentrated red wine with aromas of ripe red fruit, mountain herbs and spices. On the palate it has body, structure and balsamic touches.
