Robert Parker: Good balance between acidity and ripening
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Qa 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

Grape sourcing

Bush vines represent the traditional vinegrowing method in Rioja, it offers betterconduction for the juices of the plant, protects is from the heat, and offers a better aeration whenthe vine is old enough.• We have selected some 120 hectares, 70 of them are ours. They are classiffied in 17different landscapes, which are later fermented in 17 different French oak vats.• Sustainability is more than a cliché for us. It is part of our philosophy and it is ouronly future.• Most of them (85% in Haro and surrounding villages) are located in Rioja Alta, butthere is an undeniable part of Alavesa (really close to Alta anyway) and Baja.• We have selected and kept 550 clons of Tempranillo that we haveidentified throughout Rioja.• Our range shows the two profiles of ripening of the Tempranillo: that of the red acidfruit (strawberry, cherry) and a darker fruit one (more oriented towards the plum)• We work mostly (with the only exception of Sela) with Vines older than 30 years,when maturity delivers

Fermentation

Grapes are chilled (downto 10ºC) upon reception for2-3 days of prefermentativemacerationIndigeneous yeasts (noyield management)17 French oak vatsfor the separate fermentationof 17 different landscapesOak fermentation avoidsthermal dropspostfermentative maceration

Malolactic fermentation

All our wines go throughmalolacticfermentation inFrench oakWe installed a radiant floorheating systemto takethe temperature up to 20ºCOnce Malolactic is finishedthe windows of the hall areopened, letting theNorthern winds takethe temperature down(stabilisation)

Philosophy

The wine, a vehicle to transmit sensations, but also a means totransmit a landscape, a Riojan landscape. We want ourwines to show a sense of place• We play with 17 different landscapes every year• We want to respect the vintage, the features that makethe vegetative cycle unique every year (no irrigation, no blend)• Wine is meant to be enjoyed, the palate is the real index, wetry to avoid saturation, we reward elegance• Our range shows the two sides of the ripening of theTempranillo: the red acid fruit (strawberry, cherry) and darkfruit (black plums)• Oak is complementary, never to play a key role

THE WINERY

BODEGAS RODA IS PLACED BESIDE THE EBRO RIVER, IN A BALCONY OF THE STATION DISTRICT OF HARO, ON A CENTENARY CELLAR. THE INSTALLATIONS WERE DESIGNED TO MEASURE OF OUR WINES: SEVENTEEN FRENCH OAK VATS (AS MANY AS SELECTED VINEYARDS PER SEASON), A BIOCLIMATIC ROOM RESULTED OF A COMPLETELY NEW COMMITMENT FOR THE INNOVATION AND TWO BUILDINGS OF AGEING WHICH WERE DUG DIRECTLY IN THE ROCK, THE RESULT IS TWO RESERVAS: RODA, SILKY, FESTIVE, FRESH AND RODA I, DEEP, COMPLEX AND VOLUMINOUS.

Although the founding of Roda goes back to 1987, the building of the bodega only began in 1991 and was finished in 2001, being completed in three separate phases. The first part was carried out by the architect Roses, and the last, most emblematic phase was directed by the architects of Llimona Ruiz-Recorder.

A vineyard on a terrace jutting out like the bows of a ship from the Haro Barrio de la Estacion to the river Ebro was transformed into the current winery location. Here, an underground cellar, reaching down 12 metres below the surface, was once used in the 19th century, when local wine growers stored their vintages there before shipping them by rail to Bordeaux to alleviate the crisis caused by the phylloxera epidemic.
