Montsant Tinto, ‘Venus’, Venus La Universal
Venus is the result every year in our search for beauty. An attempt to interpret the feminine, the earth, through a bottle of wine
We work with 4 parcels of Grenache and Carignan old vines located between Pinyana and Crossos. A ridge vineyard with both North and South sides from argilo-calcareous soil, deep and wet to allow slow and long ripening. The Syrah comes from our plot Venus La Universal.
Grapes are harvested by plots, selected and processed separately, but finally we try to ferment all together if the vintage allows us. Grapes are processed as whole berries and with some stems from Grenache, fermenting with wild native yeast, with slight pigeage during fermentation and maceration that takes around 28 to 32 days in wood tanks and open 500l. barrels . Venus is aged in a 4000l wood vat, and some 300l barrel during 20 months.
