He has done just that, travelling the world for decades pouring Chilean wines, promoting their quality and potential.
It is because of Eduardo’s dedication that Vina Seña and Viñedo Chadwick are considered among the world’s finest by international critics and wine media, and he has received multiple awards for his contributions in Chile, and in the world of wine as a whole.
Through rigorous grape selection, gentle handling and the finest wine making techniques Seña and Viñedo Chadwick painstakingly makes wines of unsurpassed quality. These limited quantity wines are allocated sparingly to top markets around the world.
“Chilean wines are among the best in the world.”
-Eduardo Chadwick, Winemaker
THE ICONIC SEÑA
Seña is a profound wine built in the way of a great Grand Cru Bordeaux, with power and elegance in mind. It began with a joint venture between Eduardo Chadwick and Robert Mondavi in 1995 to show Chile’s full potential on the world wine stage. The goal was to create a world-class, icon level wine like none other in Chile.
Achieving world-class wine takes time, something both Eduardo and Robert knew; to create Chile’s first icon wine would take both of their know-how. Seña, a Bordeaux-style red blend leans heavily on Cabernet Sauvignon but brings in Carmenere to tie the wine back to its Chilean terroir.
Seña not only proved to be a world-class wine, but also a wine with the potential to age gracefully—a sign that a wine belongs in the upper echelons of wines in the world. A top-scoring wine since the beginning, Seña boasts two 100-point vintages.
2018 was one of those vintages of a lifetime, the beautiful ripeness and uniqueness of the intense aromatics arising from the grapes were captivating, faithfully representing the greatness of the vintage and the exceptional terroir of the Seña Vineyard.
“The complexity on the nose conceals it’s many subtleties, unfolding floral notes alongside red and black fruits, denoting its distinctive freshness … I believe we are beholding one of the greatest vintages ever crafted in the 25 years of Seña’s history,” said winemaker Francisco Baettig of the 2018 Seña.
THE TOP-SCORING VIÑEDO CHADWICK
The iconic Cabernet Sauvignon grape flourishes in Chile’s Puente Alto soils and at Errazuriz they harness that potential to make yet another iconic wine: Viñedo Chadwick. This wine honours the memory of the late Don Alfonso Chadwick Errazuriz and has been a 90+ point wine since its inception in 1999.
Consistently a top-scoring wine, Viñedo Chadwick was also the first Chilean wine to garner a perfect 100-point score, cementing Chile’s place in the world as a top wine producing country and Errazuriz as one of the top wineries within it. The awards and honours have placed them in such lofty company as Petrus, Chateau Lafitte Rothschild, Chateau Margot and Domain de la Romanée Cont.
With ideal conditions throughout the growing and harvest season, winemaker Francisco Baettig put it best when he said: “Extremely elegant, intense and of a unique depth, this is perhaps the most balanced vintage ever crafted of Viñedo Chadwick, promising a great aging potential.”
