Armador is the Spanish word for “ship owner” and is the name of our original line of wines, launched in 1999. These are vibrant, provocative, and authentic wines with extraordinary fruit and freshness. They aim to show the typicity of each variety grown in our vineyards

 

This delicious Carmenère, a variety rediscovered in Chile, is made with Odfjell’s best grapes, grown both in Padre Hurtado and Maule. Respecting the typicity of the variety, its fruits were harvested early to allow for more freshness and acidity. A wine that shows the best of 2 valleys: while Maipo lends minerality, Maule contributes with the balsamic notes and the lushness that give life to this special Carmenère.

 

Grapes are sourced from Maipo Valley and Maule Valley. Vines are 22 years old.

 

Vinification: The grapes were picked and the bunches were destemmed but not crushed. The whole berries then underwent a cold maceration at 14oC for four to six days prior to fermentation in 40,000-liter tanks using selected and native yeasts, followed by a 10-day post-fermentation maceration at 25oC. Malolactic fermentation took place spontaneously in tanks.

 

Alluring purplish-red in color with aromas of dark fruits and licorice as well as hints of spice notes such as black pepper and cloves. The palate is long and refreshing with ripe fruit flavours and soft tannins.
