Description

Roda uses vines over 30 years old, the yields are kept to a very low 1.5 Kg per vine to encourage phenolic maturity which results in a concentration of intense aromas and depth of flavour complexity on the palate. The fourteen Tempranillo vineyards are located near Haro, the historic heart of La Rioja Alta. Sustainable farming practices are utilised such as no use of herbicides or pesticides; excess buds are eliminated and when necessary, buds are grafted from Rodas own rootstocks. Bunches are carefully selected before the grapes are meticulously sorted on a table. Vertical basket presses are utilised to crush the fruit in the gentlest manner possible. A cold soak is utilised to extract optimal colour and tannins, high-temperature fermentation (up to 30C), long macerations, and traditional Burgundian techniques pumping over and stirring of the lees

extract the finest primary material from the grapes.

Tasting Notes

Roda I shows intense black cherry aromas, blackberry and wild herb with dense

powerful, spicy and mineral fruit on the palate. This is a wine with serious

structure, harmonious balanced acidity and ripe soft tannins.
