La fraîcheur et l'élégance d'un iconique vin du Chili
Fruit d'un très grand millésime marqué par un hiver pluvieux, suivi d'un printemps doux et d'un été chaud, Seña 2016 révèle avec beauté l'expression de son terroir de naissance: l'Aconcagua Valley située au nord de Santiago, au Chili.
Millésime noté 98 sur 100 par James Suckling, Seña 2016 confirme la position du domaine au rang d'icône au Chili.
Seña 2016 est issu d'un assemblage de Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), de Malbec (20%), de Petit Verdot (12%), de Carmenère (8%) et de Cabernet Franc (5%).
À la dégustation, le cru présente une grande pureté aromatique en affichant un fruit brillant sur des notes de mûres et de myrtilles. Au palais, le cru emballe immédiatement la bouche dans une succession de saveurs en déployant son ampleur et son volume, délicieusement texturée par des tanins veloutés et soyeux. La pureté du fruit persiste longuement en finale. Un magnifique millésime pour le domaine Seña prêt à être dégusté et qui évoluera encore avec grâce dans les années à venir.

Rainfall arrived with some delay during the winter of 2015; the first considerable rains did not fall back to July
Due to this, we had already set our mind to have a dry year, we had several years of less-than-average rainfall

Nature proved us wrong, the rains continued until October, and ultimately, between January and December 2015 (313 mm) was 9% higher than the average (288 mm)
It is perfectly possible to provide balanced moisture to the canopy
Along with the rain came during the spring, delaying bud break in 8 to 10 days as compared with the previous season
This slight time lag has continued, but it has taken a long time, providing a healthy condition for a healthy fruit set
Summer reached a heat summation that was 1% higher than our average records
Even though January had warm days, veraison arrived 10 days later than average due to delays
The warm summer weather continues all around February, allowing the crop homogenize before getting into the cool days of March that slowed down the ripening process
The harvest at our Seña Vineyard reached maturity later in the season
It was mostly concentrated during the first fortnight of April, except for the Malbec, which was picked up in March and the Carmenere, picked up during the last week of April, just ather the rains that arrived halfway through the month, reaching historical records of 79 mm
the wines have been deliciously round tannins and are bolstered by a bright and balanced level of acidity
The flavors of each varietal truly stand out in this vintage, and the quality of the wines is a testament to the quality of Seña's terroir
The 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
The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks at 23 º -28 º C (73 º -82 º F), depending on the desired extraction

Three pumps were carried out daily during fermentation
0.5-1.5 times the volume of the tank

Total maceration time ranged from 15 to 30 days for Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, and 8 to 12 days for Petit Verdot, according to the development of each block vinified
The final blend was racked to the barley (73% new) and aged for 22 months, during which time malolactic fermentation and stabilization occurred naturally.

4/5

Scents of red roses. I noticed a kind of salty aftertaste in the finish.
This 2017 is one of the most potent vintages of this wine.

I had bought it in the Aconcagua Valley region .
Red with violet edges. Vanilla aromas. A smoky touch remained in my mouth.

I drank it accompanied with a snack. I opened this 2013 with a friend.
Dark cherry colour. Sensual aromas of chocolate. Its flavour reminds me of wild berries.
