Odfjell Orzada Carignan 2019

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

Carignan from Cauquenes, located in the Maule Valley, 175 m above sea level. The moderate temperature is regulated by the cool breezes from Pacific Ocean and the soil is deep red clay loam.

The 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.

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.

Orzada is the Spanish word for “sailing into the wind”. This series of quintessentially Odfjell wines showcases our passion for innovation with wines crafted with fruit selected from specific old vines in our organic and biodynamic vineyards.
