Kaiken Ultra Malbec

2013 Beautiful ruby red color with violet hues. On the nose, flowery and mineral notes are evident, with spicy touches that make the wine more complex and are finely blended with the elegance of the French oak. On the mouth it’s a wine of great structure and power, with tannins that are both soft and present. It has an outstanding balance and a very long finish, where red fruits and flower notes are evident. Ready to be enjoyed now and has the potential to be cellared for at least ten years. Matches all kinds of meats; foods with spicy sauces, soft and creamy cheeses and sweet desserts.
$35.00 / Bottle   $420.00 / Case

Additional Information

Chile's Aurelio Montes went into Argentina because of its grapes. From the start, Kaiken searched for the best grapes in Mendoza, instead of worrying about big investments in land and winery. This has enabled Kaiken to “map” all the quality-producing areas in Mendoza: 1st Zone (Maipú, Cruz de Piedra, Ugarteche, Agrelo) and the Uco Valley.

To obtain grapes of real quality, Kaiken has changed the traditional way of buying grapes in Argentina. They have entered into contracts with top producers with much anticipation. Seasonal works are closely supervised and the resulting low yields are also closely controlled. The producers are compensated by paying considerably above market price for their premium grapes. This has resulted in having large number of quality producers wanting to work with Kaiken, enabling Kaiken to select the best amongst them.

This wine is a blend of 97% Malbec and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes are hand harvested using 15kg bins. The best grapes are manually selected before starting the winemaking process. 80% of the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.
