Odfjell Armador Merlot is dark with shades of violet.
The Odfjell Armador Merlot nose is concentrated and deep, with aromas of cherries, figs and violets.
There is a splash or Carmenere and Syrah in Odfjell Armador Merlot which means the palate is long, complex and juicy with soft tannins.
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.
In the bygone days of the sail ships, wine provided a safe drink for long voyages. Dan Odfjell, a Norwegian “armador” (shipowner), perpetuates this legacy by making wines to sail from Chile across the seven seas.
He invested in some land which serendipitously turned out to be located in Chile's premium red wine producing valley.
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.
Odfjell is committed to being a leader in progressive vineyard management, and we are dedicated to elevating the image and practice of viticulture in Chile.
The goal of this work is to produce the best possible wines in the vineyards, while maintaining our long-term commitment to sustainable agriculture and environmental winemaking practices.
For this reason, our vineyards are 100% organic and we have also recently begun biodynamic farming.
