RODA
Represents of one the two profiles of the ripening of Tempranillo: the red fruit.
In RODA we look for the parcels that that year have ripened in a red fruit profile, with the expression of the aromas present in the edge of the glass, ready to be felt immediately; with sweet spice notes and a kind freshness. In the mouth the red fruit carries the importance, with a fresh, long, silky, voluptuous and continuous mouth pass. Before vintage 2002, RODA was called RODA II.

CLIMATIC CYCLE

The year of the short cycle. 36 days with temperatures below 0ºC during the winter. 478,6 mm. of precipitations in the vine-growing year. A frost on the 16th of April, reaching -4,5ºC that devastated the region. September was rainy and a very good month of October.

A limited production. Exorbitant prices of the grape. (The grapes of the frozen vines were better according to the quantity, those vines which were not frozen had many grapes.)

TASTING

Colour:

Medium layer, light, with red tones, somewhat evolved but maintaining liveliness. It is less evolved in color than 98.


Nose:

It is intense and complex, with more herbaceous notes and some mineral notes. The nose is very fresh, opposite to the sweetness of 98.

Perhaps the short cycle and the frost make the nose more vegetal.

The profile of the fruit is red and fresh with fine skins.


Palate:

Very light bodied, very fresh and with a certain vegetal sensation. In the mouth, a certain thinness is felt that tapers to the bottom, leaving a sensation of freshness.

It is austere on the palate but pleasant. The tannin is somewhat green, with a very Atlantic profile.
