The 2019 Odfjell Orzada Carmenere has a dark red in color with purple reflections. This Carmenere wine is complex, with spices, ripe red fruits such as cherries, raspberries and plums mixed with aromas of blackberries followed by tobacco. The Odfjell Orzada Carmenere has a concentration in the mouth is the highlight and juicy. The finish is long, with soft, velvety tannins.
Orzada is the Spanish word for “sailing into the wind”. This series of quintessentially Odfjell wines showcases our passion for innovation with wines crafted with fruit selected from specific old vines in our organic and biodynamic vineyards.
This wine really speaks of Odfjell’s closeness to the Maule Valley, its people and its traditions. A premium Carmenère, produced with high-quality grapes from Cauquenes, harvested much earlier than most others. The wine was aged in stainless steel tanks and cement spheres, without any use of oak, to achieve more broadness and fruit expression on the palate. A radical Carmenère, an ode to red fruits and herbs, that reflects the winery’s affinity with Maule.
