Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The wines are quite transparent of the vintage conditions, with the 2019 Roda being round, lush and velvety, with polished and sleek tannins and more volume and concentration, reflecting a low-yielding, warm and dry year. This is a cuvée with more red than black fruit produced with 91% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano and 4% Garnacha from 30-year-old vines fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in French barriques, 50% of them new, the other 50% second-use for 14 months. It's a red with 14.5% alcohol, ripe fruit, measured oak and integrated acidity. 145,744 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2021.
Roda is a red wine from Bodega Roda. It is made from a blend of the best selection of Tempranillo grapes (89%), a small amount of Graciano (6%) and Garnacha (5%) from La Rioja Alta.
On a gastronomic level it is a very special and versatile wine. It is the perfect accompaniment to fish, roast meat or a complex stew.
The grapes are harvested by hand. The grapes come from vineyards planted with an average age of over 30 years. The soils of the vineyards are characterised by their altitude and particular climatic conditions.
The alcoholic fermentation process has been carried out in French oak vats. Malolactic fermentation was carried out in French oak barrels.
As for the ageing, it is carried out in French oak barrels. 40% new and 60% second use for 14 months in barrels. After bottling, it rests for 30 months before being released onto the market. Stabilisation is carried out using natural methods with egg whites.
Roda shows good volume with a velvety feel, very good quality tannin and a red fruit expression full of nuances. With a very slight bitterness from the cherry stone. It is long, fresh and very delicious.
A fresh wine that stands out for its elegance.
Roda is a wine of great elegance and balance. It has a lot of depth and great fruit aromas full of rich nuances.
This wine has shown to have all the potential of La Rioja. It has a pleasant degree of freshness and an excellent aromatic expression. It is pure, transparent, and ages very well.
It promises to give good results both from the moment of purchase and a few years later, thanks to its ability to be maintained over time.
