Escudo Rojo Origine 2018, Maipo Valley Chile

£29.95

Hailing from the Maipo Valley in Chile comes the Escudo Rojo Origine. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is a testament to the growing conditions in the valley for said Cabernet. The 2018 season was perfect for Cabernet with great concentration and depth of fruit and the Origine shows this off magnificently. It has been aged in both new and one year old French oak barrels for 12 months to soften the tannins and add a hint of smoky cedar.
