Bodegas Roda SELA is a young, strong wine, it has lots of things to tell, but with the fresh voice of youth. Coming from sustainable vineyards. It’s ready to be consumed as soon as it’s released, with a younger aging than its older brothers and with a great bottle aging capacity. An attractive wine to young people that begin to live the passion of the wine world.

2020 was a wet vintage with 635 mm of rain in Haro. Quite warm winter, although unpleasant due to the abundant mists. The soft and very rainy spring. Between March and April, around 200 mm were collected. The overflow is coming. May is less humid and with high temperatures.

Flowering is 15 days earlier. The first half of June was cold and humid, with very low minimum temperatures, less than 10 degrees. A very important attack of downy mildew develops in clusters, without leaf spots, affecting entire areas with significant crop losses. On 06/12, the Regulatory Council limited performance to 90% for the first time due to COVID. Intermittent rains continue and the mildew spreads.

July is cool at the beginning and with days of high temperatures at the end. Start of Veraison on July 20, two long weeks in advance. Ripening proceeds smoothly. The weather helps. The wines are of very good quality, with good concentration, fine tannins, they show their faces quickly and are fresh.

  • Medium layer wine with a bright red background and a red rim. .
  • It is intense and very fruity, the red fruits stand out above the glass, with a sensation of liveliness. The wood is practically imperceptible, as befits a wine made from used wood. There is a lot of freshness and the main fruity note is linked to the cherry and its stone. The aromatic set is light and cheerful with a fruity sensation that makes it very appetizing. Completing the set are aromas of fresh herbs.
  • Medium and continuous volume, without troughs. It is very fresh and the tannin is fine. Red fruits fill the palate and stay for a long time. It is very long and pleasant. A delicious wine to enjoy now and for years to come.
