Sena Aconcagua Valley 2016

  • Grape 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Country Chile
  • Region Maipo Valley
  • ABV 13.5%
  • Producer Vinedo Chadwick
  • Case size 6 / 75cl
  • French oak barrels, 73% of them new for 22 months.
  • Deep, bright ruby colour. Fresh red fruits followed by soft notes of liquorice and gooseberries, and some herbal tones, with nuances of cedar, cigar box and cloves. Full-bodied, the wine offers the same rich fresh fruit impressions on the palate accompanied by soft herbal notes, leather bean, tobacco, liquorice and bitter chocolate. The mouthfeel is elegant and round, with highly structured but finely polished tannins.

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 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 vinified. The final 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 Sena 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.
