Winemaker's Notes:

Of purple color, our Kaiken Ultra Malbec combines notes of figs and wild flowers, finely blended with the elegance of the French oak

On the mouth it is an intense and powerful wine, showing the gentle and sweet tannins, characteristic of the Malbec variety and Kaiken's winemaking style. Its aftertaste showcases violet hints provided by the fruit of our Agrelo vineyard.

A bold Malbec that shows a unique balance between alcohol and acidity, product of the wide thermal amplitude found in the highest zones of Mendoza and Uco Valley (1,000 m.a.s.v / 3,280 feet above sea level)

About Kaiken:

Lauded Chilean winemaker Aurelio Montes traveled across the Andes to make these wines, just like the Kaiken bird does when it migrates.
