Kaiken Ultra Malbec is a wine that embodies the spirit of Kaikenes, wild geese native to Patagonia, symbolizing the winery's journey across the Andes to set up in Mendoza, Argentina. The vineyards are strategically located in the heart of Mendoza and Valle de Uco, focusing on premium grape varieties like Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. While Malbec has gained immense popularity, Kaiken aims to revive the significance of Cabernet Sauvignon, utilizing old vineyards in Mendoza that produce exceptional fruit. Approximately 70% of the grapes are sourced from Kaiken's own vineyards, with an additional 30% from vineyards under their control.

The Malbec Ultra is crafted from grapes grown in three distinct vineyards in the Uco Valley, each at varying altitudes: Vista Flores at 1,400 meters, Gualtallary at 1,300 meters, and Altamira at 1,100 meters. Despite altitude variations, the soil types—predominantly alluvial with sand and silt on rocky layers—offer excellent drainage, contributing to the concentration of grapes.

The winemaking process is meticulous, with hand-picked grapes sorted upon arrival. A seven-day pre-fermentation maceration at 10ºC precedes a seven-day fermentation at 26ºC in concrete tanks. Malolactic fermentation occurs in the same tanks, followed by aging in French oak barrels (one-third new) for 12 months. An additional six months of bottle aging enhances the wine before release.

The resulting Malbec Ultra showcases a deep ruby red color with purple tones and a captivating aromatic profile. Spicy and floral notes on the nose lead to a structured palate with soft tannins. The finish is fresh, complex, and long, featuring delightful blueberry and blackberry notes. This wine reflects the dedication to quality and the unique terroir of Mendoza.

Tasting Notes

Blueberries, violets, crushed stones, dark chocolate and sandalwood on the nose. It's medium- to full-bodied with firm, powdery tannins. Creamy and intense with a solid core of blue fruit. From organically grown grapes. So gorgeous.
