Located in the Aconcagua Valley, north of Santiago in Chile, Seña is one of the most iconic wines of South America. The 2017 vintage in this region will be remembered for hot, sunny days with record-breaking average temperatures in August and September. Nevertheless, the high temperatures were moderated by the proximity of the Seña vineyard to the Pacific coast. The harvest began quite early, but yielded fruit of exceptional quality, very healthy and consistently ripe.
A blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, 10% Carménère, 10% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot, the Seña 2017 is a wine that balances power and elegance. The beautiful ripeness of this Chilean wine is complemented by a certain freshness, promising remarkable ageing potential. The decision on when to begin the harvest was particularly important in this vintage, in order to ensure the right balance between its ripeness and a freshness resulting from a perfectly achieved level of acidity.
Luscious, bright fruit aromas (primarily black fruits) mingle with beautifully integrated empyreumatic notes and floral fragrances in the bouquet of the Seña 2017, a wine whose great stature promises great longevity in the bottle. This is a wine to be cellared for a few years to allow it to fully reveal its character.
