Aromas are lifted and bright in this wine with loads of blackberries and blueberries. Full body, velvety tannins. Gorgeous texture. Very pure fruit. A bright and more fundamental Seña than last vintages. Restrained at the end. 55% cabernet, 20% malbec, 12% petit verdot, 8% carmenere, 5% cabernet franc. September 2018 release. Needs three or four years of bottle age.
Chadwick Eduardo
One of the biggest names in Chilean wine, Eduardo Chadwick teamed up with famed Californian vintner, Robert Mondavi to create Chile’s first icon wine - Seña. Releasing its first bottles in 1997, this 1995 vintage was the culmination of the duo’s commitment to produce the country’s greatest premium red wine. This trend-setting move made way for the future of Ultra-Premium Chilean wines. Situated amongst the rolling hills of Aconcagua, the 350-hectare property owns 42-hectares under vine, that enjoy both organic and biodynamic farming approaches. The blend differs from vintage to vintage, but is typically comprised of about half Cabernet Sauvignon, with a varying mixture of Carmernere, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot varieties. The grapes are fermented in thermo-controlled stainless-steel tanks, then the wine is aged in French new-oak barrels for 22 months. Fondly received by critics and aficionados alike, Seña is undoubtedly Chile’s rising star.
