Norwegian wine via Chile! Odfjell is actually a Norwegian shipping firm. This wine is made from 100% carmenere grapes, sourced from the central valley, grown on 10 - 20 year old vines. Intense aromas of black fruits and liquorice, with spicy notes of black pepper, cloves, vanilla and bitter chocolate. The palate is ripe, soft with some spice.
Black, meaty and appealing on the nose. There are complex aromas of ripe red fruit mixed with notes of wood. The palate is soft and has round, voluptuous tannins resulting in a good balance and fantastic length.
The nose has jasmine tea notes with white pepper held together by a fine sandy structure. On the palate there are bright floral and mineral nuances with a lingeringly spicy, ginger and exotic finish. A hugely and broadly appealing and accessible Gewürz.
