Sara Pérez is the wife of Rene Barbier who makes the famous Clos Mogador, Espectacle and Manyetes. Sara Pérez is also in charge of the Clos Martinet family estate. She also works closely with her brother Adria at Cims de Porrera. Father JoséLuis Pérez, one of the important figures in the Spanish wine world, is proud of his children. He remains active in various wine projects. Together with her husband René Barbier (Clos Mogador), Sara Pérez owns and vinifies two beautiful wines at Venus La Universal. As a tribute to every small food manufacturer from the 1920s who wanted to become big, Sara has named this mini-domain Compania Universal de Vinos. There at 'La Uni', as she likes to call it, she created almost the mother of all feminine wines: Venus. And 'Dido' is the more than exemplary daughter of 'Venus'. New is the Dido Blanco, a complex white wine based on Macabeo and Garnacha Blanca, with partial fermentation in French oak. The wine deserves some bottle aging and is best served in large glasses. Elegant 'feminine' wines with lots of style.

The Dido La Universal Blanco was born from intuition and the need to make wine mainly from grapes of local grape varieties. According to Sara and Rene Barbier, this is the way to make good wine as they strongly believe that the grapes belong to the terroir (a bit like a Pinot Noir belongs to Burgundy - it can of course be grown somewhere else, but then it also tastes different). The wine is a blend Garnatxa blanca (white Grenache), Macabeu (Viura) and Cartoixà (xarel·lo).

15% of the grapes are macerated with skins for 3/5 days in open barrels to make the sourdough (pie de cuba) to obtain the native yeasts, then another 20% are macerated with skins for 24 hours and the rest goes directly to the press. 30% is matured in a 3000l Amphora (clay) and the 70% in various oak barrels from 300l to 4000l for 14 months. The wine is certified organic and is grown and produced in a purely natural way and has wonderful storage potential.

The Dido Blanco is straw yellow in the glass with a slightly greenish tinge. The Dido is a voluptuous wine with scents of autumn, ripe fruit, raisins and the typical dry slightly oxidative touch (nutty) in the nose, which makes the wine a gastronomic stunner. In the mouth the wine is fresh, pure, nice acidity and well balanced. The Dido Blanco is a very tempting wine and certainly not an "average"

Press wine April 2022 — 4.5* in the Catalunya, Navarra and Aragón Special " Smell: pear, peach, flowers, wax, vanilla. Taste: powerful and thick, ripe, lush, beautifully matured ."
