Odfjell Armador Carmenere

$21.33

Odfjell Vineyards was created by Norweigian shipping magnate Dan Odfjell. A lifelong mariner, Odfjell first visited Chile during the early 1980’s. Struck by the breathtaking scenery of the Maipo Valley, he decided to purchase a plot of land. He planted his first vines in 1991, and released his debut vintage in 2000. Today the winery has 85 hectares of vineyards. French born Arnaud Hereau looks after winemaking, while Chilean Arturo Labbé oversees the vineyards. Their vineyard holdings include some of the regions oldest vines (up to 100 years old). In the vineyard they practice biodynamic viticulture (certified by Demeter), and employ a team of low impact Norwegian fjord horses to prevent soil compaction.

“Here’s a beautiful Carmenere that shows what the grape can do when it achieves full ripeness, without retaining any of the vegetal aromas. A cornucopia of black fruit and delicate spice. Mouth-filling yet fresh with elegant tannins, threaded through the long, polished, dry finish. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling
