Particularly hot and dry conditions in 2019 enabled the grapes to reach optimum maturity.
Lower than average rainfall, concentrated almost entirely during the winter, combined with slightly higher-than-average temperatures ensured perfect conditions for the vine growth cycle, enabling the grapes to reach optimum aromatic and phenolic maturity.
These exceptional conditions generated natural concentration while preserving balance and refinement, allowing the grapes to achieve the purest expression of the identity of each terroir.
As a result, the wines express all the generosity and power of Chile while remaining elegant and silky.
Offering excellent ageing potential, 2019 is one of the great Chilean vintages.
80% of the wine is matured in oak and 20% in stainless steel vats, for eight months before bottling.
Escudo Rojo Reserva Pinot Noir is made entirely from the same grape variety even though the requirement under Chilean law is only 75%.
Cherry - Spices - Fresh - Elegant
Clear, beautiful cherry-red with ruby highlights.
An intensely fruity wine, with notes of red fruit such as cherry and raspberry, and an earthy character, combined with soft spicy aromas imparted by oak ageing.
Starts out superb and very refreshing, with excellent acidity. The structure reveals highly refined and elegant tannins. Red fruit aromas follow through to the aftertaste, with lots of complexity and a long finish.
