Plots and Soil
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 argilocalcaris soil, deep soil and wet to allow slow ripening and long. The Syrah comes from our plot Venus La Universal.
Some words about Winemaking and Ageing
Grapes are harvested by plots, selected and processed separately, but finally we try to ferment all together if the vintage allow us. Grapes are processed as whole berries and with some stems from Grenache, fermenting with wild native yeast, with slightly pigeage during fermentation and maceration, that takes around 28 and 32 days in wood tanks. Venus is aged in a 4500l wood vat for 6 months and 12 more months in 2500l foudres.
