Escudo Rojo Sauvignon Blanc, Casablanca, Chile

£10.95

In the late 1990’s Baron Philippe de Rothschild S.A, true to the pioneering spirit of their founder, Baron Philippe, decided to invest in viticulture in Chile. Baroness Philippine, the daughter of Baron Philippe, was impressed with the sheer potential of Chile’s terroir, and was fully invested in producing a range of quality and expressive wines that met her exacting standards. The first of these wines was Escudo Rojo, the Spanish translation of the German “Rote Schild” which means red coat of arms. By naming this wine after her, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild signs the Rothschild family’s anchorage in Chile. This Sauvignon Blanc utilises fruit from the cool valleys of Chile, which enables this charismatic grape to retain its defined aromatic intensity.

Tasting notes

Pronounced and expressive, this is classic Chilean Sauvignon Blanc; bursting with lime, elderflower, gooseberry and melon. The palate offers refreshment and layer upon layer of citrus fruits, with an invigorating freshness making it the perfect summer wine. Chill and serve with salads and goats cheese.
