Quick Overview

This wine, Made by Baron Philippe de Rothschild, comes from the best vineyards in two of Chile's most highly reputed winegrowing areas.

Details

Attractive ruby red, dense, deep and vivid.

Complex, elegant, fresh and generous, the nose reveals sustained raspberry, blackcurrant and blackberry aromas, nicely accompanied by more subtle notes of blond tobacco, spice and mocha.

The attack is elegant, round and full-flavoured. Mature, tightly knit tannins reveal all the character of the terroir. Suggestions of black berry fruit, cherry and pepper gradually emerge, perfectly combined with roasted, toasted notes.

The long, substantial and expressive finish harmoniously combines Cabernet freshness and elegance with the roundness and powerful flavours of Syrah and Carmenere.

This wine, Made by Baron Philippe de Rothschild, comes from the best vineyards in two of Chile's most highly reputed winegrowing areas, the Maipo valley and the Rapel Valley.

Nestling at the foot of the Andes Mountains, the Maipo valley offers ideal conditions for growing cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and syrah. Plentiful sunshine during the day and cool nights produce a considerable temperature differential that allows the grapes to ripen slowly.

Further south, the Rapel Valley has rich and well-balanced, predominantly clay-loam soil. Its water reserves ensure harmonious, stress-free growth for the vines, providing conditions in which the carmenere grape can flourish.

Escudo Rojo is a blended wine made from four different grape varieties. Cabernet Sauvignon (40%) and cabernet franc (5%), traditional Bordeaux varieties, give refinement and tannic power, while carmenere (37%) and syrah (18%) bring body, density and a touch of spice.

Serve with duck breast, braised lamb shoulder or cheeses.

    Medium-Bodied and Textured Red Wines

    In the middle of the gamut from light to bold, medium-bodied reds are some of the best food pairing wines. Classic examples of this style include varieties like Sangiovese and Merlot. You’ll find there is quite a bit of variation in these varieties because of regional differences in growing and winemaking. For instance, a Merlot from a hillside estate on Spring Mountain in Napa Valley will have high tannin and blackberry flavours whereas a Merlot from a large valley vineyard in Lombardy, Italy will exhibit subtle tannins and soft cherry flavours.
