Pagos del Rey Condado de Oriza Crianza Ribera del Duero 2007
The wine is made from grapes carefully selected from more than 20-year old-vineyards within the boundaries of Olmedillo, Anguix, and Villatuelda. The wine underwent 15 days of maceration and was fermented under controlled temperatures at 28 to 30º C. Once it completed malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for 14 months in new American oak barrels with decanting every four months to achieve more oxygenation and expressiveness. Following aging in oak, the wine was bottled, where it remained in the winery for an additional nine months.

A relatively soft and plump style of Rioja Crianza, this wine shows black and red cherries in a gentle demeanor throughout. It embodies the notion of Rioja as a region that ages its wines sufficiently to taste great upon release, unlike any other wine region in the world.
