This blockbuster was created through a collaboration between Eduardo Chadwick and Robert Mondavi. The 2021 Seña is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Malbec, 17% Carmenere and 6% Petit Verdot. 90% is fermented in stainless steel and 10% in concrete eggs. It has a controlled 14% alcohol and good freshness. It's subtle and layered, not just fruit but with more spice; it has polished tannins and highly integrated oak after 22 months in barrique of which 78% new oak and 10% 2nd year (large Stockinger barrels).

"An extremely pure and elegant vintage for Seña. This is really fresh, nimble and floral on the nose with subtle cherries, plums, redcurrants and wild lavender. More red fruit here with lots of layers and just a touch of sweet spice. Very discreet and subtle, with the elegance, freshness and poise you'd expect from 2021. Medium- to full-bodied on the palate with a bit more flesh and depth if you compare it with Roca de Seña, their second wine. The impeccable tannins show the supreme quality of the fruit this year. Persistent, seamless finish, but comes in a subtle way." 100 Points James Suckling

FACT: World-famous winemakers Eduardo Chadwick and Robert Mondavi founded 'The Berlin Tasting' together in 2004. In this copy of the 'Jugement de Paris' from 1976, top Chilean wines worldwide are tasted, in addition to classics considered unbeatable such as Château Lafite-Rotschild, Château Margaux, Stag's Leap and Sassicaia. During tastings in Budapest and Hong Kong, Chilean wines took no fewer than 4 places in the top 5! The Chilean icon wine Seña finished in 1st place in Budapest and with the 2007 vintage came 2nd after Château Margaux in the Hong Kong tasting!

Vineyard for 2021 Seña

The Viña Seña winery is located in Valle de Aconcagua. It was founded in 1995 by two charismatic winemakers: the Chilean Eduardo Chadwick, the owner of Viña Errazurriz and legendary Californian Robert Mondavi. What started as an ambitious dream at the time - producing a world-class wine in Chile - has now found countless followers. Nevertheless, the Seña remains in a class of its own. The futuristic bodega, designed by the Chilean star architect Germán del Sol, is spectacular. But the main property of the winery is the 42 hectares of vineyards, surrounded by breathtaking nature on various soils and planted with cabernet sauvignon, carmenère, merlot, cabernet franc, petit verdot, malbec and syrah. In short, the traditional varieties. The conditions for growing wine are so good here that you can work organically without tools. Needless to say, a winery like Viña Seña has the very best and most modern technology in the wine cellar. The responsible oenologist has been Francisco Baettig since 2003, a student of Michel Laroche and Michel Rolland. The latter has even improved the five most recent volumes of the Seña. The joint venture with Robert Mondavi ended in 2005, but the visionary's spirit is still ubiquitous. Viña Seña is one of the greatest icons of the wine world.
