2018 has been described as the best vintage in the past 20 years in Chile.

Seña was created as a joint-venture between Eduardo Chadwick and Robert Mondavi back in 1995, with the dream of making a wine that would show Chile’s full potential, a wine that would be welcomed, in time, among the world’s First Growths. Modeled on a Bordeaux style, it would have a Chilean soul given by its Carmenere variety, grown under the principles of biodynamic farming in the Aconcagua Valley.

Grape varieties: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Malbec, 15% Carmenere, 7% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot

Alcohol: 14%

Ageing: 22 Months – 85% New French oak barrels 15% Foudres.

It is the highest-ever scored vintage of Seña by the Wine Advocate, beating 315 other Chilean 2018s for 98 points from Luis Gutiérrez who says,“This has to be the finest vintage of Seña to date.” It has also been awarded the perfect 100 points by James Suckling who calls it, “a very intellectual Seña, with a glamorous palate, ultra-fine tannins and toned muscles”.

We have purchased a small parcel of Seña 2018 that is available to the market at £495.00 per six IB.
