Bodegas Roda Selas Rioja 2017
Bodegas RODA was conceived and initiated in the late 1980's by the Rollant-Daurella (Ro-Da) family of Barcelona, minutely involved in Spain's fine wine distribution sector. Considered “the most modern of the traditionalists and the most traditional of the modernists.” Roda works with a total of 120 hectares - 70 owned by Roda and 50 by contracted growers - all bush vines; no irrigation; minimum intervention (no chemically synthesized products and use of cover crops). Their uncompromising commitment to quality is evident in the extensive research and development department and the state of the art gravity flow winery which includes the seventeen Seguin Moreau foudre for fermentation, radiant heat malolactic room and extensive aging cellar.
"Sela" was aged in French oak for 12 months.

92 points James Suckling
Intense, fruity and cheerful, Sela is a wine with a lot of liveliness. Red fruits in the line of fresh cherries dominate with undertones of sage and cedar. The structure is gracefully supported with fine, silky tannins for a persistent, lovely finish. 14% Alc.
