We delisted another very good, top selling Malbec to add this to the shelves. So far, no complaints. And why should we expect any? This is Malbec as everybody loves it. Luscious, powerful and rich. The fruits are black, juicy and unctuous and there is a lovely floral, violet touch to the wine. Just a hint of spice too, but that's entirely secondary to the softness of this wine. The palate is velvety and round with big juicy tannins and a bright saline finish.
Kaikenes are wild geese, native to Patagonia, that fly across the Andes between Chile and Argentina. In the same way, Montes, the Chilean winery, crossed the Andes to set up in Mendoza. Their vineyards are situated in the heart of Mendoza and further to the south in Valle de Uco, where many of the premium producers are now sourcing their fruit. The focus is primarily on Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, a variety that has been somewhat forgotten as Malbec has surfed one wave of success after another in the past decade. As a result, there are many old vineyards in Mendoza that produce excellent fruit. Kaiken's own vineyards supply 70% of their production requirements and 30% is from vineyards that they control.
The Kaiken Aventura range celebrates Kaiken's ongoing exploration of new sub-regions and their regional differences within Mendoza. Located in the heart of the Uco Valley, Los Chacayes was classified as a GI in 2017 (a 'Geographical Indication' signifys an area of particular quality). Kaiken planted vineyards here between 2011 and 2016 at 1,250m, the highest altitude of the region.
