Description

Tasting Note 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. by Francisco Baettig, Winemaker
Assemblage 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, 15% Carmenere, 10% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot

Terroir/Vinification

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.
