Sena 2017

“e aromas of blackberries, cedar, sandalwood and black tea are compelling. Black olives. Rosemary and sage
undertones. Full-bodied, rich and powerful Seña with impressive and powerful tannins, yet harmony and balance.
Fruit-forward. Lightly chewy. Fresh and energetic wine in a hot year.”
James Suckling, April 2019
“Of a bright, garnet red color with beautiful violet sparkles, the 2017 vintage of Seña unwinds in a display of
attractive aromas of blueberries, cherries, some cloves, violets and cassis, framed by so pastry notes, and a delicate
nal touch of licorice. In the mouth it is juicy, very fresh and lively, with tannins that provide support and structure
to a wine with amazing persistence and personality, and that will age gracefully over time. is is perhaps one of the
most complete and denitive versions of Seña that we have craed so far.”
Francisco Baettig, Winemaker

VINTAGE NOTES
Hot and sunny days marked the 2017 season. Nevertheless, thanks to its privileged coastal location in the Aconcagua
Valley -only 40 kilometers away from the Pacific Ocean - the cool breezes that blow in moderated the temperatures.
This combination of factors allowed Seña to reach perfect ripeness with a unique balance between concentration and
power alongside tension, elegance and freshness.
At the outset of the season until July 30, the soils in our Seña vineyard were fully replenished with generous water
reserves with rains totaling 282 mm, all concentrated in winter, much higher than the historical average for that
same period of 180 mm.

“Of a bright, garnet red color with beautiful violet sparkles, the 2017 vintage of Seña unwinds in a display of
attractive aromas of blueberries, cherries, some cloves, violets and cassis, framed by soft pastry notes, and a delicate
final touch of licorice. In the mouth it is juicy, very fresh and lively, with tannins that provide support and structure
to a wine with amazing persistence and personality, and that will age gracefully over time. This is perhaps one of the
most complete and definitive versions of Seña that we have crafted so far.”

The following months lead to a dry spring, with average temperatures well above our records in August and
September, enabling an early bud break that occurred 15 days before the historical dates. Flowering also came in
advance due to an increase of 18% in November’s heat summation. Continuing with this trend, a perfectly
homogenous veraison began 15 days prior to historical dates, given the higher heat summation recorded from
October to January.
Summer also followed with high temperatures. This, together with low yields, 34% lower than historical averages
(Cabernet Sauvignon plots average was 3,2 Ton/ha, while for Carmenere was 3,8 Ton/ha), set the stage for an early vintage.
The tracking and control of the ripeness and harvest decision, that got ahead 20 days compared to historical dates,
were fundamental to preserve the freshness and elegance style of our Seña wine.
Once the season came to an end, we were able to conclude that ripeness of the skins developed marvelously, along with intense flavor concentration. Seña 2017 owns a delicate balance between power and elegance; ripe, rounded, polished and very fine-grained tannins, along with complexity and freshness projecting an amazing ageing potential.
FERMENTATION & AGEING
Grapes were handpicked during the morning and transported to the winery in 12 kg boxes for a careful inspection on
a double sorting table to discard plant matter and imperfect berries. 75% of the grapes were fermented in stainless
steel tanks and 25% in concrete tanks at 23°–28°C (73°–82°F), depending on the variety and the desired level of
extraction. Three pumpovers were carried out daily during fermentation to rotate 0.5-1.5 times the volume of the
tank. Total maceration time ranged from 12 to 30 days for the Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Malbec and
Cabernet Franc, and 8 to 12 days for the Petit Verdot, according to the development of each block vinified. The final
blend was aged for 22 months in new French oak barrels (66%), second and third use French oak barrel (14%) and
Stockinger foudres (20%), during which time malolactic fermentation and stabilization occurred naturally
