Details for Finca Durona 2016
Bottle size and vintage
The Heretat Mont-Rubí winery owns over 300 hectares of vineyards, woodland and mountainous terrain in the municipality of L'Avellà. Most of the vines they cultivate are local Penedès varieties such as Sumoll, Grenache, Carignan, and white grapes like the Xarel·lo and the Parellada. Mont-Rubí pay special attention to the Sumoll, a rich traditional grape variety which fell out of favour for different reasons and is scarcely cultivated nowadays. The Mont-Rubí winery is the first modern cellar to believe in the Sumoll and its expressiveness once more.
The Durona wine comes from vines planted at altitudes of between 500 and 700 metres in the Alt Penedès region. Its coupage is mainly based on Sumoll, together with Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, and a little Merlot. After vinification, it is aged in French and American oak barrels for twelve months before being left to stand in the bottle.
In the glass, it has a light crimson colour and its lack of density is perhaps an indicator of its subtlety. It is easy to distinguish from other wines because of its delicious aromas; delicate hints of cologne, lactic notes, leather, coffee, toffee, damp woodland, orange peel, honey and quince ... Moving it around the glass awakens smooth aromas of embers, figs, fine dark chocolate and glue. We recommend decanting this wine as on first opening it is sometimes a little closed with aromas of forests and truffles.
It offers an elegant consistency in the mouth, with little density which means its very fresh character can show through. In fact, two different sensations can be experienced; a more fatty profile, like mineral water, and a fresher wine side. An all-round wine, the Durona surrounds us from many directions.

Lo compré en oferta y es un vino que a mí paladar y a mi juicio, deja un buen sabor de boca y que no es ingrata la experiencia de haberlo probado.by: Pabli (9 Jan) - Vintage 2016
No lo volveré a comprar
No es nada del otro mundo, calidad normalita, precio excesivo.by: Gabi (07/11/2020) - Vintage 2016
Un lotería. Lo he comprado calvarías veces y algunas han salido buenas, otras claramente no estaban para beber. Eso sí, cuando abres una buena vale la pena. Sobretodo si te gustan los buenos viejos y profundos. Dale tiempo para airearse.by: Antonio (09/10/2019) - Vintage 2015
At first impressed. Then a slowly pervasive bitterness . Not a well balanced wine despite plenty of flavours.There are lots of better wines at this price point I am afraid. Yes I did take the time to decant.
Bodega Heretat Mont-Rubí
Founded in 1984 in an old 19th century building, Bodega Heretat Mont-Rubí is located on an estate ina large area of forestland and vineyards around the village of L'Avellà in the Alt Penedès region. Their project is key to understanding the recent history of the Catalan grape variety Sumoll which would most probably have disappeared if it hadn't been for the winery's hard work and commitment to cultivating and using it.
