Dido, “La Solucio”, Rosa, Venus La Universal, 2018
22 July 2021

Venus La Universal is the personal project of married powerhouses Sara Perez (Mas Martinet) and Rene Barbier (Clos Mogador). Having run their respective family estates with an attention to detail and unrelenting focus that has seen both reach the pinnacle of fine Spanish wine, it is at Venus where they come together to experiment and produce a range of freer, delicious, everyday drinking wines under the “Dido” brand. Produced from locally sourced, indigenous grapes, the Venus project supports a handful of local grape growing families in the less well-known Montsant appellation, a stone’s throw from the couple’s more prestigious Priorat base. In Montsant the soils are primarily granite, with limestone in the cooler reaches, resulting in crisp, trembling wines imbued with lashings of warm-climate Mediterranean spice and flair. Indeed, anybody who has tasted the stunning Mas Martinet wines will know that Sara takes a handsfree approach, which allows the wines to breathe, and that philosophy is the same at Venus. Produced in a staunchly traditional way in huge oak foudres, where it rests for 16 months with minimal intervention, the Dido Rosa is a stunning, bright, spicy-savoury Rose that, while lesser known, stands to rival even the great Tondonia. At just over £18 per bottle including duty and VAT, we think it’s a bit of a no-brainer… Hugely food-friendly, this is the perfect wine for summer. It comes alive with flavourful salads and lightly spiced foods hot off the grill…    Read More
