PERE VENTURA FAMILY WINE ESTATES has shined in the Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA), the number one contest in visibility and impact. MERUM PRIORATI wines have scored between 90 and 97 points, with EL Cel 2016 obtaining the Platinum Medal and being the only DOQ Priorat Wine with this oustanding score. On the other hand, PERE VENTURA Cava has been awarded two Platinum’s: Vintage Gran Reserva Brut 2014 and Tresor Cuvée Gran Reserva Brut 2014 have scored 97 points.
El Cel, MERUM PRIORATI’s special homage to the classic Priorat Wine style, is described by Decanter’s Panel of Tasted as of “superb complexity on the nose with concentrated balckberries framed by elegant nose of oriental spices, black pepper and toasty oak. A unique wine, combining power and finesse, with a lingering open finish and tightly knitted tannins supported by a juicy core of fruit concentration”.
PERE VENTURA Vintage 2014 is “Elegant savoury nose with nuances of toasty oak with rich apple and marmite aromas. In the mouth is sharp, energetic and ethereal, with real depth a finely textured bubbles with a delicate texture”.
PERE VENTURA Vintage 2014 is part of the PV Premium VINTAGE collection: long ageing cava of limited production, produced with base wine from organic single vineyard hand-selected grapes, vinified separately and with indigenous yeast. Following the Traditional Method, the Wine undergoes a second fermentation on its less in bottle with a mínimum ageing of 42 months. PERE VENTURA Vintage 2014 is a blend of Xarel·lo (60%) and Chardonnay (40%).
The awarded Tresor Cuvée Gran Reserva Brut 2014 (Tresor Collection) is a long-ageing gastronomic cava produced with a blend of Xarel·lo (60%) and Chardonnay (40%). A part of the chardonnay base Wine is fermented and aged in oak barrels, giving to the final product a very personal outlook as described by Decanter’s Panel of taste: “Delicious layered nose of lemon peel, ripe green apple and pear framed by intriguing notes of smokey oak, toast and sweet brioche. Fresh and vibrant on the palate, delicate mousse with a mouthwatering crisp acidity”.
