Seña 2015 Half Bottle 375ml

£70.00

100 points, “Stunning aromas of blackcurrant, stone, blueberry and liquorice. 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.” – James Suckling

With that 100-point score, this really is the perfect half bottle of red wine.

Seña – meaning ‘signal’ – is made by Eduardo Chadwick Claro, Decanter’s Man of the Year 2018 and the president of Errázuriz. Before its first vintage, 1995, Chile didn’t have a reputation for fine wine. Seña changed that, becoming the country’s first truly iconic red. It was originally a joint venture between Eduardo Chadwick and Robert Mondavi, who joined forces to create the ultimate Chilean wine. In 2005, Eduardo Chadwick became the sole owner of Seña. And what a way to mark the tenth anniversary of that…

The 2015 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Malbec, Petit Vedot and Cabernet Franc sourced from predominantly biodynamic plots in Aconcagua Valley. Matured for 22 months in a combination of French oak and Stockinger foudres, this is a wine of real finesse that deserves a place in the hall of fame. 2015 was a warmer year, but that heat was kept perfectly in check. Swapping the Merlot for Malbec has given the wine more elegant tannins. Expect blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, crème de cassis, chocolate, smoke, bonfire toffee, vanilla, liquorice and so much more. Probably the best vintage of Seña yet.

Seña originally shot to fame following a tasting in Berlin in 2004. This was a sort of Chilean tribute to the Judgement of Paris at which Seña and Viñedo Chadwick (Eduardo Chadwick’s other masterpiece) were tasted blind against the world’s best Cabernet blends, including Super Tuscans and First Growths from Bordeaux. The two Chileans of course came out on top and their legendary status was cemented forever.
