4 /5

The fermentations are produced with unselected yeasts, with the aim of trying to maintain the aromatic and structural diversity. Wonderful everyday priorat style

Denna Venus är en fröjd med aromer av hallon. Denna Venus verkade trots allt ganska färsk.
2015 är det bästa jag har provat.

Preda de uns amigos.
A cor estava entre o vermelho e o castanho. Boas notas de toffee. Acidez muito correta.

4/5

As I had it between meals I could not pair it. My friends loved Venus la Universal.
A Montsant with brown edges. The Montsant smells like cherry, licorice. On the palate was quite thick.

Sensual aromas of cherries. A slight flavour of raspberries this red.
I have found it rather fine.
