A wine with a medium-depth, vivid cherry colouring, against a red background with scarlet edging.
Very agreeable, with a sensation of red fruits including fresh, well-ripened cherries, some strawberry notes and a hint of liquorice. The wood is imperceptible, even though the wine spent a year in second-use and third-use barrels. After the fruit a range of light floral notes develops, surrounding and enveloping the presence of cherries. Hints of sweet spices.
Medium body, friendly, fresh, flavourful and exuberant. The tannin is highly polished, with a silky character. The red fruits move through the mouth to leave a sensation of freshness ans appoachability. A superb vintage which combines both maturity and freshness.
The deep, persistend nature of this wine carries reminders of an excellent year among the vineyards of Haro.
It communicates the controlled youthfulness of a vintage that has the potential to be Bodegas Roda's most everyday wine, while remaining true to the winery's philosophy and style.
An excellent vintage.
440 mm. rainfall during the growing season.
The winter was wet, early spring was dry and there was plenty of rain during the flowering season which caused millerandage and in turn resulted in open and well-aired clusters.
July and August were very dry. There was virtually no rain. There were no phytosanitary problems and almost no treatments were needed.
Some light rains in September and October that allowed an excellent, although rather small harvest.
Temperatures were well below those of 2009 and the whole cycle was slower, with a delay of about 10 days.
It was a cooler vintage, which left its mark of freshness and elegance in the wines.
