Characteristics of Sela

Sela is a red wine from Rioja prepared by the Roda winery.

The winery is located in the famous La Estación de Haro, a historic enclave in the Rioja Alta where the highest concentration of wineries in the world can be found.

Sela is made mostly with Tempranillo (95%) from vines between 30 and 15 years olf, to which is added a touch of Graciano (3%) and Garnacha (2%).

For the cultivation, sustainable viticulture is followed, limiting fertilisers to a minimum and performing sanitary treatments (pest control) with sulphur and copper, avoiding chemicals, where possible.

For processing alcoholic fermentation and malolactic fermentation takes place spontaneously in French oak vats.

After the fermentation process, the wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

Tasting notes Sela

This vintage, rated as "Very Good", was characterized by the hard frost that occurred when the vegetative cycle was beginning in mid-April, and by the subsequent drought. Except for these two weather events, the year passed normally, with the vintage displaying a perfect health status in the last phase of the cycle. The wines of this vintage are characterized by having a somewhat higher average graduation than 2016, with a very good aging capacity and a high percentage of fine and very identifiable wines.
High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
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.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
Sight Cherry, middle layer with bluish reflections. Clean and bright. Nose Medium-high, with aromas of red fruits (cherries, blackberries). Balsamic, mineral and spicy background. Taste Good entry, fresh and tasty. A big and bulky wine, with a touch of cherries and a well-integrated oak. Complex and enjoyable.
Sight Pretty cherry red colour with bluish reflections. Clean and bright. Nose Lots of fruity aromas in the nose (red fruit, cherries, blackberries). Balsamic notes. An elegant wine. Taste On the palate this wine is fresh, tasty, creamy and very elegant. Well integrated wood. Balsamic notes present. Persistent finish.
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.
Sight Cherry colour with bluish edges. Clean and bright wine with thin light tears. Nose Medium intensity aromas in which the very expressive, intense notes of ripe red fruit stand out on a toasted background. After swirling the glass, some balsamic and grassy hints are also noticed. Taste Good, quite bulky attack with a silky sensation and a very pleasant mid palate in which the same notes of red fruit noticed on the nose are released. It shows a good acidity and soft, well integrated tannins. A nice red wine.
Sight Cherry, intense and brilliant. Nose This wine is characterized by a large amount of fruit that overlies the wood and aging aromas (toasted and vanilla) and appearing with light balsamic touches that give freshness. Taste This wine is pleasant, tasty and fresh. The age of vines, aging and the slight presence of the Graciano variety makes it more fresh and fruity than their siblings but without losing the elegance and complexity of these.

    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.
