03-Nov-2016
Escudo Rojo is the Hispanic translation of the German Rote Schild, referring to the Baron Philippe de Rothschild venture in the Maipo Valley of Chile established in 1999. The bodega ha 63 ha of vineyards, located at Buin-Maipo, 45 km south of Santiago. Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Syrah, Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvignon are planted to produce varietal wines as well as a rosé and a Bordeaux-blend, named simply ‘Escudo Rojo’. Here, I review a selection of current and new releases. The wines are solid and deeply constructed. www.escudo-rojo.com The wines are distributed by Kahurangi Liquor Distributors. www.kahurangiwine.com
