Winemaker's Notes:

This deep red-purple colored wine has a rich nose with aromas of black fruits such as blackberries. Additional notes of cloves, dried plums, almonds, tobacco leaves, a touch of vanilla and liquorice, traditional to Odfjell's terroir, add complexity. Full bodied, juicy, with firm, ripe, velvety tannins and a long finish.
My Notes:

About Odfjell:

Our unique gravity flow winery, designed by Laurence Odfjell, the son of the founder, allows for extremely gentle handling of the grapes and the fine wines. The winery is situated on a slope above the vineyards. Carved into the slope, over 60% of the winery is under ground.

This subterranean environment achieves naturally low and stable temperatures for storage. The design incorporates a number of passive cooling strategies such as, optimizing solar orientation and using 30cm thick concrete walls as thermal mass.

Gravitational wineries ensure that during the winemaking pumping is reduced to an absolute minimum, thus avoiding unnecessary agitation of the wine. This gentle handling allows us to preserve all the subtle fruit characteristics from our vineyards to the final bottle.
