Superior Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon which displays fine terroir - showcasing how Chilean wine's superb potential
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. He invested in some land which serendipitously turned out to be located in Chile's premium red wine producing valley, where Vitis Vinifera has been cultivated for over 400 years. 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,s at times, this was considered an eccentric move, interest in these old sites has since grown hugely.
Tasting Note: This alluring wine displays intense aromas of raspberries, dry plum and figs with just a hint of eucalyptus. Juicy and rich with round tannins, a touch of coffee and chocolate and a long finish.
