Notes: Grapes for this well structured & intense Kaiken Ultra Malbec are sourced from three separate areas in the Uco Valley: Altamira, Vistaflores & Gualtallary. Each area brings it own distinct qualities & characteristics to the blend. Deep ruby red in colour, with purple tones & a wonderful display of rich aromas. The nose is enticing & spicy with black fruit & floral notes. Structured with soft tannins that lead to a finish that is fresh, complex & long, with fruit notes & subtle undertones of rosemary, thyme & dried flowers.

 

Producer Info: Kaikenes are wild geese, native to Patagonia, that fly across the Andes between Chile & Argentina. In the same way, legendary Chilean winemaker Aurelio Montes crossed the Andes to make wines in Mendoza. Aurelio saw the enormous potential of the region for premium viticulture &, after several exploratory trips, founded the Kaiken winery in 2002. His aim was simple: to make great wines in Mendoza &, in doing so, to show the best of both sides of the Andes.

The estate vineyards are situated in the heart of Mendoza & further south in the Uco Valley, where many premium producers are now sourcing their fruit. The focus is primarily on Malbec & Cabernet Sauvignon, a variety that was almost forgotten in the region as Malbec’s popularity continued to soar over the past decade. As a result of Kaiken’s protection, there are now several old vine Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in Mendoza that produce excellent wines, including the Kaiken vineyard in the Vistalba district of Luján de Cuyo, first planted in 1910.
