3遵循直覺和家族傳承,智利名莊Chadwick的莊主Eduardo Chadwick 和加州葡萄酒之父Robert Mondavi精心打造了這款品質優異、個性獨特的葡萄酒。Seña是兩人精心合作的華彩樂章,一次充滿激情的旅程。在智利 Aconcagua 山谷找到最完美的沃土之前,Chadwick和 Mondavi 曾苦尋4年之久。在那裡,他們買下了350公頃的山坡處女地。

Seña是一款地道的智利佳釀,以最好的 Cabernet Sauvignon、Carmenere、Merlot、Malbec和Petit Verdot 混合釀成,堪稱智利最佳葡萄酒。

為確保最好的品質,所有葡萄均在清晨由人工採摘,用12公斤裝的籃子運送至酒廠後,還必須在篩選台上經再三挑選,務必去除多餘的部分及不完美的果實,之後存放於溫度控制在攝氏 24-28度 (華氏75-82度) 的不鏽鋼桶中進行發酵,並依葡萄品種所需萃取程度進行調整。發酵過程中,每天要進行三次的淋汁作業,以循環發酵桶 0.5 – 1.5倍的汁液。Cabernet Sauvignon、Merlot、Malbec 和 Carmenere 總浸皮時間從 9 - 40 天,Petit Verdot 則為 6 - 8天,實際浸皮時間依每區葡萄的生長狀況而有所不同。最後,葡萄酒被裝入法國橡木桶(70%為新桶) 陳放 22個月,靜待乳酸發酵及酒質穩定自然完成。

品酒筆記:
(2012)
“像是在對我低吟呢喃般,口感綿長,相當迷人,絕妙 的平衡度。歷年以來Sena之頂尖佳作”

James Suckling 評選 Sena 2012 年份為 98 分

「讓人驚艷的紅色,充滿了黑苺,甘草,檀香香氣,還能察覺出一股開始如熱石但慢慢轉換為雪茄盒和一絲香甜的氣息。酒體飽滿,層次多變,濃郁度恰到好處,令人愉悅。像是在對我低吟呢喃般,口感綿長,相當迷人,絕妙的平衡度。歷年以來 Sena 之頂尖佳作。」

-James Suckling, 2014年6月

「溫暖的氣候與乾燥少雨的產季讓此年份的葡萄茁壯精實,成熟度高並帶有濃郁水果風味。為了維持Sena一向的優雅、細緻與新鮮的口感,在灌溉環節上我們付出了更多心力進行管理,在採收時間提早的決定下,同時也須留意確保丹寧已完全成熟圓潤。我認為此年份的Sena在整體表現上是相當令人驚艷的,完美地融合了力道與柔美,口感新鮮,卻也能感受其強度,互不衝突,平衡和諧。」
-Francisco Baettig, 首席釀酒師

2013年有微妙和清新的紅果和黑果香,還有經典的煙草和胡椒粒香味。橡木與香料和淡淡的煙燻香氣巧妙地融和,紅果味非常出色,增加了新鮮感。多汁、鮮明、悠長,十分好喝。單寧非常細膩,略帶顆粒感。有着絕妙的平衡感、經典的比例……相信這款酒在瓶中有很長的陳年潛力。裝瓶60,000樽。

2013年是涼快的一年,在這年份種植的葡萄,展現出相應的方向。這款葡萄酒非常和諧,既有酒莊的風格,亦很優雅。這是Sena另一個極好的年份,在瓶中陳釀可說不費吹灰之力。2016年裝了60,000瓶。

2015年可能是稍微溫暖的一年,這年份的葡萄酒酒精度較低,酸度較高,喝來酸度更活潑,充滿活力,亦更集中地表現了這個地方的特色。而且,用上大型橡木桶(foudre)來陳年,似乎有助橡木味更好地融合。 質地很好,用Malbec來代替Merlot,亦令單寧更加細緻,超級優雅。2017年2月裝了66,000瓶。


Guided by intuition and backed by family heritage, Eduardo Chadwick and Robert Mondavi handcrafted a wine of distinctive quality and character. Seña is the culmination of their wonderful parternship and a passionate journey. Chadwick and Mondavi searched for four long years before finding the ideal Chilean terroir in Valle de Aconcagua. There, they acquired 350 hectares of virgin hillside land.

Seña is an authentic Chilean blend made from the finest Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot varieties, it is well renowned as the best Chilean wine.

(2012) 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Carmenere, 12% Merlot, 7% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot

Vinification:
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°–28°C (75°–82°F), depending on the variety and the level of extraction desired. 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 9 to 40 days for the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, and Carmenere, and 6 to 8 days for the Petit Verdot, according to the development of each block vinifed. e nal blend was racked to French oak barrels (70% new) and aged for 22 months, during which time malolactic fermentation and stabilization occurred naturally.

Tasting Notes:
(2012)
98/100 James Suckling :
A phenomenal red with aromas of blackberry, licorice, sandalwood and hot stones turns to cigar box and hints of sweet tea. Full body, with incredible depth and concentration yet agile and playful. Long and fascinating. It talks to you. Balanced. The greatest Sena ever. (Winemaker and owner agree.) Perhaps it was the touch of malbec to the blend but there's wonderful purity and beauty. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. Better in 2017.

The 2012 Sena is from a cool vineyard on a rocky hillside with some clay, in the middle of the Aconcagua Valley, where there is still some influence from the Pacific Ocean. This wine has always been a blend, and in 2012 it is half Cabernet Sauvignon, complemented by Carmenere, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Bright and focused, with a nose mixing red fruit, it is also bright-colored, with ripe black fruit and balsamic notes in the shape of tobacco and cedar wood, with a medium-bodied palate, very good freshness and acidity, sophisticated, polished and fine-grained tannins. This is still a baby, but the silky texture makes it accessible now, while the complexity should come with more time.

The 2013 Seña has a subtle nose with aromas of red and black fruit denoting very good freshness, and the classical tobacco and cracked peppercorns, with the oak nicely integrated adding some spices and faint smoky aromas. The red fruit is remarkable and really adds freshness. Linear, juicy, sharp and long, very tasty and with very fine, slightly grainy tannins. There is superb balance, classical proportion and symmetry... I'm sure this will bloom in bottle and will have a long development.  60,000 bottles were filled.

This is very much in line with the 2013 and the direction set by that cool year. The wine is very harmonious, elegant within the house style. Another superb vintage of Seña. This should age effortlessly in bottle. 60,000 bottles were filled in March 2016.

The 2015 might have been a slightly warmer year, but the resulting wine is lower in alcohol and higher in acidity, which provide for a more vibrant mouthfeel and a more focused expression of the character of the place. This vintage has half a degree less alcohol, and the acidity is a little more pungent; and, the amount of wine in foudre seems to help the oak to show better integrated. This is dry, nicely textured, and the replacement of the Merlot by Malbec seems to have also added to the refinement of the tannins that are super-elegant. 66,000 bottles were filled in February 2017.
