Oludeo ‘Sueños Olvidados’ 2017/2018, Sierra de Gredos, D.O. Madrid
Oludeo is a wine making project, owned by the Tindal family and made under the guidance of winemaker Simon Tyrrell, focussing on two high altitude regions in Spain. The first wines were made in Yecla, in the valley that lies north west of Alicante in eastern Spain where the climate and mixture of soils provide excellent conditions for growing Monastrell based wines. Altitudes from 535-800 metres above sea level contribute to significant diurnal variation, helping greatly with berry development and acid retention. The second part of the project concentrates on the mountainous Sierra de Gredos, to the west of Madrid. Here, the friable granite soils and altitude help produce Grenache based reds that have both elegance and freshness. In both areas, the grapes are hand harvested, partially crushed and de stemmed and fermented at cool temperatures. Ageing takes place in 500 and 600 litre French oak demi-muids.
