“The 2015 Roda is a blend with more Garnacha, up to 8% (from 3% in 2014), and the Graciano epresents 6%, which complements the 86% Tempranillo. All of these wines ferment with indigenous yeasts, and this 2015 matured in French oak barrels for 14 months, 40% of the barrels new and the rest second use. It has great balance and a juicy palate, with fine tannins and a pleasant mouthfeel. A very good Roda.” - Luis Gutierrez.
