Chilean wine estate Seña has announced the release of the 2021 vintage onto the fine wine market.
Seña 2021 represents the Chadwick family portfolio.
Seña was created in 1995, a joint venture between two pioneers in wine, Eduardo Chadwick and Robert Mondavi. Seña is grown under biodynamic farming principles in the Aconcagua Valley.
“We are thrilled to continue our upward trajectory in the U.S. market as one of Chile’s key luxury estates. The Seña 2021 vintage, which has already received a 100-point score, is no exception to our reputation of excellence,” notes Seña Executive Director Magui Chadwick, Eduardo’s daughter. “This newest release from Seña is proof that Chilean wines deserve to exist within the fine wine space worldwide.”
The 2021 vintage of Seña is a blend of cabernet sauvignon, malbec, carménère and petit verdot, with ruby and violet hues, the company says Francisco Baettig, Seña’s Technical Director, explains, “The nose reveals delicate notes of strawberries, cassis and rose petals, framed by hints of cloves, spice and cocoa. Red fruit and blackcurrants, pastries and dark chocolate make for a delicious palate where the tension is perfectly balanced by the juicy acidity and fine-grained tannins, tracing a smooth and vertical backbone through the palate. This wine can be enjoyed for many years to come.”
Seña is released worldwide on La Place de Bordeaux, as well as imported into the U.S. by Shaw-Ross. The suggested retail price is $150 per 750-ml. bottle.
