Characteristics of Venus

Venus La Universal is a red wine produced by the winery Venus La Universal in Falset, D.O. Montsant.

 

Venus La Universal is the winery of Sara Pérez and René Barbier. Trained in the respective family wineries of Priorat (Clos Martinet and Clos Mogador), in 1999 they decided to start this professional and vital project in Montsant.

La Universal is the small 4-hectare plot where the wines of Sara and René are born from. Through organic agriculture, with maximum respect for the environment, optimising energy and resources in all the production processes, they make wines with great character, faithful to the terroir where they come from.

 

Venus La Universal is a wine made from Carignan, Grenache and Syrah from a vineyard located at the top of a hillside with both orientations, north and south. The soils are clayey-calcareous, deep and humid.

Harvest is performed by hand. All the varieties ferment together, if the vintage allows it. Whole grapes and some stems from the Grenache. It is fermented with wild yeasts, and with a slight pigeage (submerging the cap). The maceration is carried out for 28-32 days in wooden vats and 500-litre open barrels. The ageing takes place for 20 months in 4000-litre wooden vats, and one part in 300-litre barrels.

Tasting notes Venus

Venus La Universal 2014 is a juicy wine with body that is very expressive. This vintage reveals a great intensity on the nose, where the harmony between the aromas of red fruit, the spicy notes of the aging and the mineral notes of the terroir stand out. On the palate it is very balanced, tasty and seductive.
Sight Cherry red colour, medium-high robe with a maroon rim. Slow and even falling tears show on the glass. Nose Very balsamic nose with lots of forest fruits. Ripe, appetising and jammy redcurrents and blackberries with spicy tones of cinnamon and nutmeg, sweet coffee and scrub. Taste Warming, enticing, fruity and mineral. Excellent structure, dense. Long and deep passage through the mouth, with a fresh acidity and a glyceric touch.
Sight Intense, bright cherry colour with maroon edges. Nose Intense and complex aromas with intense and expressive notes of black fruit which appear initially along with leather and toasted aromas. When it opens up, the fruit becomes more juicy and gets a touch of liquor. It is mixed with notes of sweet spices and scrubland. Elegant mineral background. Taste Large, bulky, full-bodied wine with a long and tasty mid palate and a silky texture. Its notes of ripe fruit are wrapped in creamy and fresh balsamic aromas. It shows a lively acidity and noticeable tannins. Very balanced red wine with a long finish and a good persistence.
Sight Picota with maroon trim. Nose Clean and aromatic in the nose, with toast and minerals of the barrel first, feelings about fruit (ripe blueberries) Taste Live and flavorful, with notes of red and black fruit (berries and currants), caramel cream, balsam leaf snuff, notes Infusion (red tea) and the slightly tannic checked. Persistent final.
