Tasting Notes

This Malbec has an alluring character of precise red and black
cherry fruit, lifted by fresh acidity with fine-grained, velvety tannins.

Producer details

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.

In the vineyard

The Kaiken Aventura range celebrates Kaiken's ongoing
exploration of new sub-regions and their regional differences
within Mendoza. Located 22 miles from Mendoza city and
surrounded by the Andean foothills, the Canota Valley was
classified as a GI in 2019 (a 'Geographical Indication' signifys an
area of particular quality). Although Kaiken planted vineyards in
2015, it is still largely unexplored with only a few producers
operating in the Valley. It has very low annual rainfall and
climatically is regarded as an Andean desert. The soil here retains
moisture, thereby enabling viticulture. Harvest generally starts one
month before the Uco Valley, which highlights the difference in
climate between these sub-regions.
