Odfjell - Orzada Carignan 2018

Overview

Summary: Our winemaking style started with the discovery of a centenary-old organic vineyard that grew lost in Cauquenes, on the Tres Esquinas estate. Planted with a patrimonial variety that has forged Odfjell‘s identity and defined the character of all its wines. These bush-trained Carignan vines have allowed Chile to rediscover a variety, a culture, and ancestral traditions. And have led us to make a wine that unsettles and goes beyond conventions, expressing a friendlier and more feminine side of Carignan. Cauquenes is located in the Maule Valley, 175 m above sea level. The high temperatures are moderated by cool breezes from the Pacific Ocean, and shoots are removed in late spring, leaves are pulled before fruit set, and the best clusters are selected before harvest.

Vinification: The grapes were handpicked, and the bunches were destemmed but not crushed. The whole berries then underwent a four-day cold maceration prior to fermentation in 10,000-liter tanks using native yeasts, followed by a 10-day post-fermentation maceration at 25ºC. Malolactic fermentation took place spontaneously in tanks. Aging takes place in 100% stainless steel tanks.

Additional Details edit

Deep and intense ruby color with a touch of violet. This wine displays a never ending mix of aromas such as cherry liqueur, licorice, white fruit such as apricots, white peaches, pears and a touch of lychee. A note of jasmine to wrap up. A refreshing experience.

"A bright and richly fruited style with dark berries in abundance, as well as a ripe, dense palate with plenty of impact. From organically grown grapes. Drink now."
