The aromatic power of Chardonnay is immediately apparent in voluptuous tropical fruit and yellow peach aromas, followed on airing by notes of gingerbread and toasted brioche. The palate is pleasantly full, the attack reveals the aromatic intensity of tropical fruit such as pineapple and passion fruit. The round and dense mid-palate displays a range of tropical fruit flavors together with notes of toasted almond and mild spices such as cumin and cinnamon, building to an attractively long finish on elegant touches of toasted hazelnut, mild spice and pineapple.
The 2019 Chardonnay Escudo Rojo from Casablanca is 50% aged for six months in 25% new French barrels. Greenish-yellow in the glass, it presents clear notes of apples and ginger along with pleasant vanilla and oak flavors. Unctuous and indulgent in the mouth; the lees bring a velvety texture well-balanced by the mild acidity.
