Escudo Rojo ‘Baron Philippe de Rothschild’ Chardonnay 2014

Chardonnay from Chile
Review Date : 02-Nov-2016
Bright yellow colour with lemon-gold hues, a little lighter on the rim. The bouquet is concentrated and tight with aromas of ripe, savoury citrus fruits and fresh yellow stonefruits entwined with subtle creamy oak, unfolding the beginnings of savoury, secondary nutty elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the flavours of savoury citrus fruit and musky yellow stonefruits show with funky, nutty and creamy oak notes. The fruit expression has restraint. The mouthfeel is refreshing and brisk with crisp acidity, and the wine follows a fine, soft-textured line which carries to a savoury, citrussy and nutty finish. This is a well-concentrated Chardonnay with savoury citrus fruit with nutty oak and musky secondary notes, on a brisk, racy palate. Serve with seafood and creamy poultry and pork dishes over the next 3 years. Fruit from the Valle de Casablanca, hand-picked and cool-fermented to 14.0% alc., with 50% of the wine aged 9 month in 1 y.o. oak barrels. 17.0/20 Nov 2016 RRP $22.45
