Carmenère - Armador - Odjfell - Maipo - Chile - Organic
Odfjell Armador Carmenere is a deep, dark Carmenère with toffee and caramel notes followed by blackberry and raspberry fruit and liquorice and coffee on the finish. Chilean Carmenere at its best in the hands of a master!
Norwegian born ship owner Dan Odfjell discovered and fell in love with a small corner of the famous Maipo Valley in Chile over 25 years ago. He invested in some land which serendipitously turned out to be located in Chile's premium red wine producing valley, where Vitis Vinifera has been cultivated for over 400 years. While most other top producers in Chile work with relatively young wines, Odfjell has forged a unique reputation by rediscovering the forgotten wealth of Chile's winemaking past. In fact, they believe their Carignan vines in Cauquenes are the oldest in Chile at over 100 years old! Although at times, this was considered an eccentric move, interest in these old sites has since grown hugely.
