Bodegas Roda Reserva 2013 has a beautiful deep red, bright and brilliant colour, with a light red colour background. On the nose, very expressive red fruit. Sensations of fresh cherry, light spices and some earthy wet notes. When the wine arrives on the palate, you will enjoy the medium volume, light but fresh, red fruit and fine tannins. Bodegas Roda Reserva 2013 is very delicate with an exceptionally long finish. Fresh, ethereal. It shows the Atlantic vintage, even more than 2012.
VINTAGE, CLIMATIC CYCLE: Bodegas Roda came to 2013 after two years of important drought. The previous winter was cold, and before the budbreak, at last, abundant rainfall. Budbreak occurred on normal dates, around the middle of April. May and June were really cold months, and the flowering arrived very late, starting at the beginning of July. It continued raining abundantly until June and with low temperatures. During the months of summer there were some isolated storms.
This climatic circumstances delayed the vineyard cycle, getting the maturation with almost three weeks delayed. Fortunately the months of September and October were excellent. It was not a year of homogeneous maturation and we had to harvest selectively, waiting to each vineyard to get its optimum maturation.
