The project of Norwegian ship merchant Dan Odfjell, Odfjell Estate is a result of a family endeavor combining a passion for wine and horses which ultimately led them to invest in Chile. The wines are handled by French winemaker Arnaud Hereu and their focus is on mainly red wines from their Maipo Valley Estate, Old Vine Malbec from Lontue in Curico, and Old Vine Carignan from Maule. The winery is tucked into the hillsides of their Maipo vineyards and works on a gravity system with a portion of the winery submerged underground. The vineyards are managed biodynamically & organically using sustainable farming techniques. Ruby red in color with violet hues, the nose opens up with strawberry & plum aromas with added touches of licorice & star anise. It is well balanced on the palate with ripe, layered tannins and a long, savory, & refreshing finish.
