Odfjell Armador Merlot Maipo Chile
This product is currently sold out.
Over 25 years ago, Dan Odfjell the Norwegian Armador (ship owner) fell in love with a small corner of the Maipo Valley. Serendipity would later show that he had found land in Chile’s premium red wine producing valley, where vitis vinifera has been cultivated for 400 years. While most of the other top producers in Chile are working with relatively young vines, Odfjell have forged an unique reputation based on rediscovering the forgotten wealth of Chile's winemaking past. At the time this was considered a very eccentric move but now the interest in these old sites has grown exponentially, in no small part thanks to Odfjell.
Odfjell, Armador Merlot wine is deep red in colour with hints of violet. The nose is concentrated and deep, with aromas of cherries, figs, violets and white fruit aromas such as apricots and pears. The palate is long, complex and juicy with soft tannins. With a low level of tannin and soft, juicy, upfront fruit, this wine can be enjoyed on its own but if you do get peckish then try it with a simple Spaghetti Bolognaise.Country: Chile
