Sena 2016

"Seña 2016 displays an intense red hue with a strikingly purple edge. The aroma is full and intense, tending towards black fruits of cherry and walnut with a touch of cabernet spice inherent to the variety. The palate follows the aroma with the same complex dark fruits and lasting structure throughout. Flavors include nutmeg from the fruit and caramel from a touch of oak. The palate is seamless throughout, with lush and intense fruits in the mid pallet followed by ripe and opulent tannins on the finish. An elegant, long and supple wine with a perfect balance between tannin, acid and fruit.” Francisco Baettig, Chief Winemaker.

Vineyard
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 mesoclimate, which
in turn produces wines with distinct characters.
Winemaking
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. ree pumpovers 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.
Vintages
The 2016 season was a dry one, especially during the growing season. Winter was mild with
average rainfall records of 283 mm, but for each month between October and April we had
almost no precipitation, except for a slight rain in March, that had a positive refreshing effect.
Spring started with temperatures higher than those recorded by historical average, especially
during October, when the heat summation accumulated was 19% above a normal year. This gave
a significant kick to the start of the vegetative growth, achieving a well-balanced and healthy
canopy. November and December moved from average to cool. These conditions favoured us
with a steady flowering, fruit set and healthy fruit conditions. In all, the total heat summation was
5,6% higher than our recorded averages.
