Bodegas Roda Sela 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: A wine with a medium-depth, vivid cherry colouring, against a red background with scarlet edging. Nose: Very agreeable, with a sensation of red fruits including fresh, well-ripened cherries, some strawberry notes and a hint of liquorice. The wood is imperceptible, even though the wine spent a year in second-use and third-use barrels. After the fruit a range of light floral notes develops, surrounding and enveloping the presence of cherries. Hints of sweet spices. Palate: Medium body, friendly, fresh, flavourful and exuberant. The tannin is highly polished, with a silky character. The red fruits move through the mouth to leave a sensation of freshness ans appoachability. A superb vintage which combines both maturity and freshness. The deep, persistend nature of this wine carries reminders of an excellent year among the vineyards of Haro. It communicates the controlled youthfulness of a vintage that has the potential to be Bodegas Roda's most "everyday" wine, while remaining true to the winery's philosophy and style.

At this particular moment, Mario Rotllant and Carmen Daurella came to La Rioja, with the passionate commitment to create a project that would bring something new to the wine world. In the Rioja, where there seemed to be nothing left to achieve, in Haro’s world famous century-old Barrio de la Estacion district, on a terrace jutting into one of the bends in the Ebro river, the beginning of this whole adventure was to take place. What better way to personalize a new project than to name it after the initials of Mario’s and Carmen’s surnames, RO-DA. The first months were made up of making contacts and performing trials; and in 1991 the philosophy of the winery was established. The formation of a high-powered technical team was the best short term means of becoming leading experts among Rioja’s wineries. Only the indigenous red grape varieties, Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano were used. There is total respect for the concept of the vintage, wines from other years are never added to homogenise or freshen up a vintage. Only wines made at our winery are bottled, we never buy-in wine from other cellars. Wines that bring out the very essence of their terroir, the vineyard, soil, climate, landscape, wines made to be enjoyed. There is no hurry to get a return on investment. The constant aim is, with time, to be recognised as producers of one of the greatest wines in the world. In this way, all the means will subsequently be gained to achieve our aims. Twenty or so carefully supervised blocks of vines, spread out among the best eco-systems of the area, from which the 17 best are vinified each year. Old vines are used, guaranteeing the best quality Tempranillo and Grenache grapes. An evaluation system for bought-in grapes was introduced that had never existed before. Harvesting is done in small crates and the first sorting table in the Rioja was introduced here. The vinification takes place in temperature controlled oak vats. Ageing is in 100% French oak barrels. We are committed to research and development, which enables us to head international projects through our active R&D department. In all, an exciting project which we invite you all to discover.
