Oludeo, La Soñadora, 2016

“An ‘Irish’ wine that arrived last night is called Oludeo La Soñadora, and comes from Spain. The Kildare-based winemaker is Simon Tyrrell, who has a degree in winemaking from Plumpton College in East Sussex, and has been making wine in the Rhône valley for five years now. The 2016 version of his Les Deux Cols Alizé (see below) is excellent. More recently, with several colleagues in Ireland, he bought three hectares of vines in the southern Rhône. The first vintage is currently fermenting away.

About This Wine...

 

Made from 100% hand harvested Monastrell, fermented in stainless steel and aged for 10 months in French oak. Medium bodied with brambly fruit characters and a touch of spice, rounded tannins and a long, fresh finish.

“Although generous in flavour it has built-in freshness as the grapes come from vineyards with warm days but long, cool nights.”

Mary Dowey, the Gloss Magazine, January 2018

“A rounded medium to full-bodied wine with a certain elegance, combined with abundant dense dark fruits, a touch of liquorice and smooth tannins on the finish. Enjoy now with red meats, or keep a year or two.”

John Wilson, the Irish Times, December 2017
