This Rose wine is created by Sarah and Rene project in Venus la Universal winery. They aim to make the color of wine more close to the rose wine in Provence in the South of France (PINK) rather than a usual rose wine in Spain (Light Red). However, the color is not the only factor they focusing on. This is a complex, aromatic, fresh and balanced wine that aims to pair with food very easily. They made it!
It's a blend of different soils and different grapes including different kinds of Grenache, Macabeo, Carignan. After pressing all the varietals at the same time, the grape most was fermented in more than ten years old barrels. The fermentation process was long and lasted 6 months. This process was then followed by 15/16 months of aging in a big foudre of 4000l of more than 50 years old and a clay jar of 3000l.
As Luis Gutiérrez from Wine Advocate mentioned: "The wines from Venus la Universal keep getting better and better, with great value in the Dido range (and a rosé that is more white than the white...) and a new amazing Garnacha from the village of La Figuera. And a truly awesome white Cartoixá from 2016.."
