Two genius wine producers have come together to get the best out of a new terroir and have crafted excellent wines that are worthy of travelling far out of your way to find. More info

Two Priorat prodigies would like their joint venture working on La Universal in the Montsant appellation, which is still in Catalonia, but in the Falset area instead, to be successful. This wine contains 45% Carignan which has been expertly blended with 35% Syrah and 20% Grenache. The vines, planted in the five different plots and cared for using biodynamic methods, are more than 60 years old now and produce a concentrated, dense juice.
This Venus cuvée will charm everyone with its beautiful, lively garnet colour that sparkles slightly purple in light. The nose is a surprise with its explosive complexity. Notes of small, well-ripened wild berries of blueberry, blackberry and redcurrant waft up from the glass. The spices of nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper and cloves as well as the floral notes of lilacs and garrigue flowers and tertiary aromas support the primary aromas. The powerful and ample palate rests on rounded, silky tannins that create a luxurious cuvée. The finish is full of balsamic and jammy fruit flavours.
This wine is ready to drink now thanks to its long ageing process, but it could continue to age for many years.

Montsant Venus la Universal Venus Sara Perez & Rene Barbier serve at a temperature of 15°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Couscous Merguez, Légumes à la Grecque, Poulet grillé.
