Bodegas Roda 2018  "Sela", Rioja, Spain

Bodegas Roda was founded in 1987 and is considered “the most modern of  the traditionalists and the most traditional of the modernists.”  Roda  works with a total of 120 hectares -  70 owned by Roda and 50 by  contracted growers - all bush vines; no irrigation; minimum intervention  (no chemically synthesized products and use of cover crops). Their  uncompromising commitment to quality is evident in the extensive  research and development department and the state of the art gravity  flow winery which includes the seventeen Seguin Moreau foudre for fermentation, radiant heat malolactic room, and extensive aging cellar.  

Winemaker: Carlos Díez de la Concepción 

Varieties: 95%Tempranillo, 3% Garnacha and 2% Graciano

Farming: Organic

Terroir: Low yielding vines of 15-30 years on limestone soils  with chalk layers and poor in nutrients at 450-600 meters elevation in  Haro. 

Vinification: Malolactic fermentation in French oak followed by 12 months aging in second and third-year-old French oak barrique. 

Tasting Notes: Intense, fruity and cheerful, Sela is a wine with a lot of liveliness. The nose is very intense, full of fresh fruit that overflows the glass. Red fruits, raspberries, strawberries and cherries that are mixed with each other. A very light, very subtle note of oak appears in the background and allows us to appreciate the prominence of the fruit more clearly. In addition to the fruit, there is complexity and mineral and slightly spicy notes appear. It has a spark of gunpowder and Sichuan pepper that fill it with joy.
