Dear Wine Lover,
I thought to underlay to your attention again Seña 2015 as I had the chance to taste it and as in my opinion this is truly a great wine. I tasted this wine personally together with my colleagues at a Masterclass we held last week here in our office, special guest was Export Manager Diego Garay who made all the way to Chile to present us his wines. And we were overwhelmed by the amazing quality of this 2015, it really seemed to have a top Bordeaux from the left bank in the glass. We also tasted back vintages such as 2009, 2011 and 2013, but 2015 is truly the vintage to have. So well balanced, complex and log in the mouth, simply perfect and the best I have ever tasted from this part of the world!
This blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Carmenere, 12% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot received for the first time in its history 100 points! Produced by the legendary Eduardo Chadwick, Seña is for sure the point of reference for Chiles wine. The 2015, which has just been released on the market, is giving the crown every wine producers would like to receive one time in its life: 100 Points. It is the first time ever it achieved 100 points confirming the tremendous work Eduardo has done in the past years. 2015 vintage in Chile, is like 2009 for Bordeaux, a vintage that is difficult to explain: the weather conditions where just perfect for the production of wine, something that happens once in a lifetime and definitely the vintage to have in the cellar..
As you maybe know Seña was created out of a partnership between Eduardo Chadwick and famed Californian vintner, Robert Mondavi. This joint-venture led to the release of Chiles first iconic wine - Seña in 1997. Since this trend-setting move paved the way for ultra-premium Chilean wines, Seña remains as the countrys brightest star! In recent years it has achieved enormous success, including the 2001 vintage, beating wines such as Château Margaux, Lafite-Rothschild and Latour in a blind tasting and the 2015 now achieving the highest score ever for a Chilean wine from a prominent international critic; James Suckling awarded the 2015 with hie higehst score of 100!

James Suckling 100 points: Stunning aromas of blackcurrant, stone, blueberry and licorice. Also iodine. Floral. Perfumed. Full body, fantastic density of fruit and ripe tannins. It goes on for minutes on the palate with such energy and focus. Touch of chewiness on the finish. A complex and complete wine that delivers a generosity with firmness. Drink in 2021 but already a classic to drink.
