At the vanguard of the modern Rioja movement, Bodegas Roda was developed in the late 1980s. From the heart of the Haro, overlooking the Ebro River, Roda fuses tradition and modernity with its 19th century cellar and 21st century Bodega. Through meticulous and exacting research, Roda have perfected the art of Tempranillo, selecting only 20 individual clones to cultivate from over 552 identified. Head winemaker Agustin Santolaya, uses bush vines of between 15 and 30 years old. The wine is dominated by Tempranillo but has a touch of Graciano. Yields are kept low to encourage phenolic maturity, which results in a concentration of intense aromas and depth of flavour complexity on the palate. Following 19 days of maceration, Sela is aged for 12 months in 100% semi-new French oak. This delivers a much more modern style of Rioja; fruit lead, with well-integrated and subtle oak.

Critics Review 07/12/2019 - Irish Independent - Corrina Hardgrave "A vibrant Rioja with bright red fruit and cherry flavours, the oak is beautifully integrated so the sweet cinnamon and clove spices add to the complexity." RP 92 - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The blend of this entry-level red from Rioja changes with the year, and the 2016 Sela is 87% Tempranillo, 7% Graciano and 6% Garnacha, reflecting a cooler year. The aim here is to produce a delicate and pleasant wine to have by the glass or with starters. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in oak barrels for 12 months. It's young and fruit-driven, has good freshness and is easy to drink, with almost unnoticeable tannins. - Luis Gutierrez JS 92 - James Suckling Dark cherries and brambleberries find their pace amidst undertones of sage and cedar. Then, fine and silky tannins take center stage, rolling gracefully through medium-chewy fruit.
