2022 enjoyed very favorable conditions, allowing the grapes to ripen well.
The year started with a very cool spring, then temperatures rose gradually, particularly beneficial for creating slow ripening conditions, high aromatic intensity, a high level of concentration and great phenolic ripeness.
This vintage has great potential and perfectly expresses both the Chilean terroir and grape varieties. It boasts good typical aromas, a delicate and elegant mouthfeel with a high level of concentration, alongside great acidity and freshness.
The 2022 vintage has great balance between structure and elegance on the palate, giving complex, fresh wines with good ageing potential.
80% of the wine is matured in French oak barrels (new barrels and 90% 1-to-2-year old barrelsand), 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%.
Fresh and elegant - Cherry - Spicy notes
Cherry-red colour with smooth ruby-red highlights.
Very intense, refreshing and fruity with notes of small red fruit (tart cherry, black cherry, wild berries), wet soil and floral hints, mingled with smooth aromas of marzipan and crème brûlée.
An elegant, refreshing and fruity wine with good volume mid-palate and smooth, elegant tannins. The aromatic complexity and red fruit notes return on the long finish, accompanied by good acidity.
