New this year is Rocas de Seña, Seña's second wine. Rocas refers to the volcanic rock soils on which the wine grows. Rocas de Seña was created with fruitiness and accessibility in mind. The blend is completely different, with two Rhône grapes added. 35% Malbec, 21% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Grenache, 9% Petit Verdot and 5% Mourvèdre.

“A purple-colored wine with subtle aromas of violets, sage, cherries and blueberries that give way to so toast notes and hints of dill and cloves. On the palate, Rocas de Seña 2021 showcases layers of fresh fruit like strawberries, sour cherries, pomegranate and blueberries along with savory notes of pastries and nuts. It is fresh and juicy with pleasant, ne-grained tannins followed by a long linear and vibrant nish.” -Francisco Baettig, Winemaker

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 Rocas de 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.
