The grapes from vines over 50 years old in vineyards near Haro, La Rioja Alta
are specifically chosen to become Cirsion

Cirsion has a deep, blackish purple colour, its aromas unravel in successive waves of very black fruit, damp earth, violets, chocolate and mint, eucalyptus, smoke.

On the palate, it has huge volume combining in astonishing manner great structure with wonderful smoothness.

Layers and layers of aromas and flavours which linger in the mouth, caressing it before developing into a finish that stays in the mouth and returns to the nose.

It is advisable to decant the wine several hours before serving, especially the younger vintages.

Producer Information

At the end of the 1980s new things were afoot in the Spanish wine growing sector. A new generation of wine people was arriving on the scene in different wine regions.
At this particular moment, Mario Rotllant and Carmen Daurella came to La Rioja, with the passionate commitment to create a project that would bring something new to the wine world.
In the Rioja, where there seemed to be nothing left to achieve, in Haro's world famous century-old Barrio de la Estacion district, on a terrace jutting into one of the bends in the Ebro river, the beginning of this whole adventure was to take place.
What better way to personalize a new project than to name it after the initials of Mario's and Carmen's surnames, RO-DA.
The first months were made up of making contacts and performing trials; and in 1991 the philosophy of the winery was established.
The formation of a high-powered technical team was the best short term means of becoming leading experts among Rioja's wineries. Only the indigenous red grape varieties, Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano were used.
There is total respect for the concept of the vintage, wines from other years are never added to homogenise or freshen up a vintage. Only wines made at Roda's winery are bottled, and they never buy-in wine from other cellars.
Wines that bring out the very essence of their terroir, the vineyard, soil, climate, landscape, wines made to be enjoyed. There is no hurry to get a return on investment. The constant aim is, with time, to be recognised as producers of one of the greatest wines in the world.
In this way, all the means will subsequently be gained to achieve their aims. Twenty or so carefully supervised blocks of vines, spread out among the best eco-systems of the area, from which the 17 best are vinified each year. Old vines are used, guaranteeing the best quality Tempranillo and Grenache grapes. An evaluation system for bought-in grapes was introduced that had never existed before. Harvesting is done in small crates and the first sorting table in the Rioja was introduced here. The vinification takes place in temperature controlled oak vats. Ageing is in 100% French oak barrels.
Committed to research and development, which enables Roda to head international projects through their active R&D department.
