Seña has launched its latest vintage, 2015, through the Bordeaux negotiants. The latest vintage of Chile’s first (and arguably most famous) icon wine is due to arrive in the UK in Spring 2018, but available to order en premier now.

A multi-varietal blend from the Aconcagua Valley, Seña has been biodynamically farmed since 2005, and usually consists of about half Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Malbec and Cabernet Franc, plus smaller amounts of Petit Verdot. The 2015 is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon (57%), but with 21% of Carmenere, and with the remainder of the wine made up with 12% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc. It was aged for 22 months in 65% New French oak and 12% in foudres.

The 2015 received a perfect 100 points from James Suckling in his annual Chilean wines report earlier this year, and 96 points from Luis Gutiérrez in Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.

Seña’s first vintage (1995) was released in 1997 as a partnership between California’s Robert Mondavi and Chile’s Eduardo Chadwick of Errazuriz.

Offered to customers by the Berry Bros & Rudd fine wine team en premier, there is still availability, with the wine currently not on allocation. Previous vintages go for around £460/6 bottles.
