Reviews & Ratings

Average Critic Score
97.5
The aromas of blackberries, cedar, sandalwood and black tea are compelling. Black olives. Rosemary and sage undertones. Full-bodied, rich and powerful Seña with impressive and powerful tannins, yet harmony and balance. Fruit-forward. Lightly chewy. Fresh and energetic wine in a hot year. Broad-shouldered. Drink after 2022.
James Suckling
They explained how the 2017 Seña was produced with "grapes that were handpicked in the morning and transported to the winery in 12-kilogram boxes for a careful inspection on a double sorting table. The grapes fermented in stainless steel tanks at 25 to 31 degrees Celsius (77 to 88 degrees Fahrenheit), depending on the variety and the level of extraction desired. Three pump-overs were carried out daily during fermentation to rotate the volume of the tank 0.5 to 1.5 times. Total maceration time ranged from 15 to 30 days for the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Carmenère and eight to 12 days for the Petit Verdot, according to the development of each block vinified. The final blend was racked to French oak barrels (67% new) and aged for 22 months, during which time malolactic fermentation and stabilization occurred naturally." They harvested early and managed to keep the same alcohol level as the 2016. This has less aromatic exuberance and is a more serious vintage with good concentration and weight, not as aerial as the 2016. They increased the amount of wine matured in larger 2,500-liter foudres instead of barrique. This is more powerful, structured and concentrated, like a drier version of the 2015, with some grainy tannins, more acidity, more austerity and less primary fruit. The tannins have some grip (the earlier harvest perhaps?) and might need a little bit of time in bottle, and the wine seems to have what it takes to develop nicely in bottle. They produced 120,000 bottles of this. It was bottled in February and March 2019. Just for the record, the varietal breakdown is 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, 15% Carmenère, 10% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot, reflecting a good year for Carmenère and Cabernet Franc.

Chadwick Eduardo

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. ...
Aconcagua Valley

Aconcagua Valley

Inheriting its name from the tallest mountain in South America – Mt. Aconcagua, the Valley stretches 100km from the eastern Andean slopes to the Pacific coast. As one of the most breathtaking wine regions in Chile, Aconcagua Valley boasts a rather hot, dry climate which is fed by the Aconcagua River that brings fresh meltwater to the lower plains. While The altitude throughout the region varies from 1000m inland to 50m along the coast, these distinctive geographic characteristics combined with the cool Pacific breezes help to moderate the otherwise high temperatures. It is thanks to these climatic and geographic conditions that quality wines can be produced in this wine-region situated just 100km north of the nation’s capital city Santiago. This viticultural paradise is home to the most renowned Chilean wines. Not to mention, one of the nation’s biggest names, Eduardo Chadwick has helped to bring fame to this area by teaming up with the famous Californian vintner, Robert Mondavi to create the country’s first icon wine – Seña. ...
