Oludeo

Oludeo

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.

Viticulture

The D.O of Yecla covers 6,500 hectares and lies between the Mediterranean and the plateau of la Mancha and is bordered by the D.Os of Jumilla, Alicante and Almansa. The altitude runs from 535 metres to 800 metres above sea level which contributes to significant diurnal variation which helps greatly with berry development and acid retention. The region receives around 3,400 sunshine hours per year and only 300mm of rain. The soil is primarily of limestone clay/sand composition. The grapes for Oludeo come from the northern part of the valley, around the mountain of Monte Arabí. The vines are 30 years old on average, bush trained and dry farmed with minimum intervention. The grapes are harvested manually.

Winemaking

Made from 100% Garnacha grown bush trained on a very loose granite soil. Hand harvested, the wine was then destemmed and crushed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Only the free run wine is retained after pressing and it is then aged for 18 months in 600 litre French barrels for 18 months.
