Product Description
Details

Located in the very heart of La Rioja, Bodegas Roda produces Sela from relatively young, 15 to 30-year-old vines.

As usual, this Spanish red wine is made principally from Tempranillo, sagely complemented with Grenache and Graciano.

Traditionally vinified, both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation took place in French oak vats. After that, this red wine from La Rioja was aged in used French oak barrels for 12 months.

Naturally stabilized, this Crianza red wine was finally clarified with egg whites.

Aerate Sela 2017 from La Rioja 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information
Appearance

The wine Sela has a lively cherry colour with a reddish rim.

Nose

Elegant and suggestive, this wine from Bodegas Roda exhibits some nicely understated notes of wild berries, slowly evolving into aromas of cherries, peach skin, spices and suggestions of underbush. This Tempranillo from La Rioja also suggests some dim mineral undertones, punctuated by some delicately spicy and toasted touches.

Palate

Gentle and harmonious, this Crianza from La Rioja has a nimble passage through the palate. Ripe red berries, garrigue, charcoal and spices. Fresh and vibrant, Sela has an excellent acidity and a very fresh, delicately mineral finish.

Our personal opinion

Mild, smooth and well-balanced, Sela 2017 is simply a joy to drink.
