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, 10% new barrels and 90% 1-to-2-year old barrels, for ten months before bottling.
Escudo Rojo Reserva Syrah is made entirely from the same grape variety even though the requirement under Chilean law is only 75%. Producing very high-quality wines, Syrah brings remarkable depth of flavour and rich tannins which improve with age.
Fresh and elegant - Black cherry - Spices
A bright, intense ruby-red colour with purple rim.
Very intense with notes of violets and liquorice, berries such as black raspberry, and also spicy aromas of bay leaf and rosemary, mixed with graphite and soft nuances of vanilla and tobacco thanks to barrel ageing.
Starts out superb with lots of volume and well-balanced acidity. Violet aromas and spicy nuances follow through to the long, lingering finish.
