Characteristics of Roda I Reserva

Roda I is a single-variety Tempranillo red wine made by Bodegas Roda, in the D.O.Ca Rioja.

Roda is a modern winery sitting on a balcony of the famous Barrio de la Estación in Haro, the capital of La Rioja Alta, on a nineteenth century ‘calado’. Its facilities are tailored to the wines that are made there, where they are committed to innovation without neglecting the region’s centuries-old winemaking tradition.

A ‘calado’ is a kind of underground cave with high humidity and a constant temperature throughout the year, making it the perfect place to store and age wine.

At Bodegas Roda, wines are made and classified according to the characteristics of each plot. Each bottle reflects the landscape. These plots are old vineyards that provide high quality grapes.

Roda I Reserva is made from plots that tend to express black fruit and depth. The vineyards are harvested selectively looking for optimal ripeness. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in oak vats at a controlled temperature. The wine is aged for 16 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which are new and the rest have been used once. Finally it stabilises naturally, it is clarified with egg white and bottled. It rests in the winery for 20 months to finish rounding.

Roda I Reserva is perfect for enjoying straight away, but it also has excellent storage capacity.

Tasting notes Roda I Reserva

After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
Roda I Reserva 2013 is a red wine dominated by black fruits like plum, accompanied by mineral notes, chocolate and balsamic hints. The palate reasserts the volume from the nose and reinforces it as an enveloping fruity complexity is revealed. It has a long mid-palate, with abundant but well integrated tannins, which balances the fruit and freshness and will leave you wanting more.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.

    The history of Bodegas Roda is not that long. Its first harvest was in 1992, and its first bottle was released on the market in June 1996. However, despite its short history, it is decisive in the evolution of new and modern Rioja wines. Located next to other wineries that are historically renowned in the famous Town of Estación de Haro, Bodegas Roda is a clear and precise exhibition of the modern cultivation techniques, and of the innovative and personal winemaking and ageing style of the wines of Rioja.
