SELA; A wine with strength, young, with many things to tell but with the fresh voice of the youth. From sustainable vineyards. Ready to consume when it leaves the market with a shorter aging that his older brothers and with a good capacity to keep. Very pleasant to drink, easy to blend it with food and especially delicious and fresh. Designed to drink more frequently, in circumstances in which neither Roda nor Roda I could reach, even attractive to young people who begin to live the passion for the wine world. Framed in the range of the fresh fruits of tempranillo of the area of Haro, good bodied, ageing in semi new French oak barrels of first quality and with the distinct hallmark of the elegance and finesse of tannins of Roda. A different wine with the experience of Roda. www.roda.es

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.
