An iconic decision is made from the heart. Following the sign of his intuition, in 1995 Eduardo Chadwick pioneered a joint venture with Robert Mondavi to handcraft a world-class Chilean wine. Chadwick searched alongside Mondavi for four long years before finding the ideal terroir in Chile’s Valle de Aconcagua that spoke to their instincts. Seña is the culmination of their vision – an expression of consummate quality and character.
e grapes were handpicked in the morning and transported to the winery in 12-kg boxes for a careful inspection on a
double sorting table to eliminate plant matter and defective berries. e grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks at
25°–31°C (77°–88°F), depending on the variety and the level of extraction desired. ree pumpovers were carried out
daily during fermentation to rotate 0.5-1.5 times the volume of the tank. Total maceration time ranged from 15 to 30 days
for the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Carmenere, and 8 to 12 days for the Petit Verdot, according to the
development of each block vinied. e nal blend was racked to French oak barrels (67% new) and aged for 22 months,
during which time malolactic fermentation and stabilization occurred naturally.
60% Cabernet Sauvignon
5% Petit Verdot
“Deep ruby red with a crimson hue, Seña 2014 is an extremely complex wine that reveals a profound, layered and intense bouquet of red fruit including raspberry, red cherry combined with cedar, bay leaf, dill and subtle tobacco notes and a touch of anise, all framed by light aromas of cocoa and clove.The palate is rich, concentrated and full-bodied exhibiting abundant, youthful, yet supple tannins and a refined lingering finish.”
