In the Ribera del Duero, the weather conditions for the 2007 harvest were mainly characterised by high temperatures during the month of August, followed by a slightly cooler September, which was beneficial for the ripening of the grapes.
Slow fermentation, at controlled temperatures, in stainless steel tanks of 31,500 litres and daily pumping-over to ensure greater extraction of flavours. Malolactic fermentation was then carried out. After fermentation, the wine remains on American oak for 12 months.
Durón Crianza is a wine with clean and brillant intensity of red-bluish colour. On the nose and palate, you can find a harmonius mingling of ripe fruit and toasted oak, liquorice and eucalyptus which provide this wine great complexity.
