- Deep ruby red with a crimson hue, Sena 2013 is an extremely complex wine that reveals a profound, layered, and intense bouquet of red fruit including raspberry, and red cherry combined with cedar, bay leaf, dill, and subtle tobacco notes and a touch of anise, all framed by light aromas of cocoa and clove. The palate is rich, concentrated, and full-bodied exhibiting abundant, youthful, yet supple tannins and a re ned lingering finish.
The grapes were handpicked in the morning and transported to the winery in 12-kg boxes for a careful inspection on a double sorting table to eliminate plant matter and defective berries. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks at 24° 30°C (75°86°F), depending on the variety and the level of extraction desired. The pump overs were carried out daily during fermentation to rotate 0.5-1.5 times the volume of the tank. Total maceration time ranged from 15 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 vini ed. e nal blend was racked to French oak barrels (65% new) and aged for 22 months, during which time malolactic fermentation and stabilization occurred naturally.
The grapes were sourced from our 350-hectare Seña Hillside Vineyard in the Valle de Aconcagua, located 41 km from the Pacific Ocean. This region features an extended dry season with moderately warm summer days cooled by gentle afternoon breezes that blow in from the Pacific Ocean. The vineyards are planted on a hillside with a north-eastern solar exposure that gives each parcel its own microclimates, which in turn produces wines with distinct characteristics.
