Over 25 years ago, the pioneering Norwegian Armador, (ship owner) Dan Odfjell discovered and fell in love with a small corner of the famous Maipo Valley, Chile. Born of rain in Bergen, Norway, he could not resist the attraction of the austral sun in this Virgilian setting. Serendipity would later show that he had found land in Chile's premium red wine producing valley, where vitis vinifera has been cultivated since the 17th century. And where a soothing coastal breeze produces a microclimate conducive to distinct and beautiful wines. This was the start of our journey, the start of what we today know as Odfjell Vineyards.

When the Norwegian shipowner Dan Odfjell founded this winery, he embarked upon an adventure filled with challenge and promise. Orzada is a nautical term for sailing up against the wind before setting a direction. Orzada wines reflect staking a course in pursuit of a beautiful and memorable wine. Sourced from 18 year old organic vines in the Maipo Valley. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Organic Syrah aged 10 months in 19% new French oak barrels, 18% new American oak barrels and 63% in two year old barrels. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 91 points saying "Deep black-fruit aromas are saturated and poised. On the palate, this is a bit jammy and pulpy but it delivers. Extracted flavors of blackberry, coffee and blackened oak finish with depth and lushness. Drink through 2020." and James Suckling scored it 92 points saying "Orange peel and black currant aromas follow through to a full body with chewy yet velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Drink now or hold."

Winemaker's Tasting Notes: Deep red color with shades of ruby. The concentrated nose displays notes of ripe fruits such as dried gs and blackberries, as well as aromas of mushrooms. Additional notes of coee and vanilla are a perfect complement. The palate is full-bodied and well structured, with a perfect balance between fruit, oak and soft, velvety tannins. The long and complex nish is harmonic, with pleasant acidity. Composition: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Syrah. Aging: Aged in oak for 10 months. 19% in new French oak barrels, 18% in new American oak barrels and 63% in two year old barrels.
