Winemaker Notes

Its purple, almost blue color, showcases blueberries and cassis notes accompanied by elegant violet and moka aromas

On the mouth it is intense and powerful, showing the gentle and sweet tannins, characteristic of the Malbec variety and Kaiken's winemaking style

This wine has a unique balance between alcohol and acidity, achieved due the high thermal amplitude of the higher winemaking zones in Mendoza and Uco Valley (1,000 meters above sea level).

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Ultra Malbec was aged for 12 months in French oak. The oak influence is apparent in the attractive perfume which also has notes of violets, black cherry and a hint of chocolate. This is followed by a structured wine that will benefit from 2-3 years of additional bottle age. The fruit is mouth-filling and has good depth and the firm finish lasts for more than 45 seconds
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Ripe and solid, with a nice range of blueberry, fig and boysenberry fruit layered with sweet toast that carries through on the long, polished finish. Drink now through 2009. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Kaiken Kaiken Vineyards  Winery Image

The Kaiken Winery was built in 1920 by Italo Calise. In those early days, the winery also made olive oil, distilled beverages, and tartaric acid. Today, the winery has the capacity to make 7 million liters of wine. Fermentation takes place in 12,000-30,000 liter tanks, which are ideal for small batches of superior quality wine.

 The Caiquen is a wild goose from Patagonia that flies across The Andes between Argentina and Chile. By embarking on this cross-border flight the Caiquen takes up a major challenge. Just like the Caiquen, Aurelio Montes, founder of the Chilean winery Bodega Montes, made several trips across the Andes until, in 2000 he rediscovered Mendoza as a generous land filled with superb vines and hardworking people. In 2001, he realized Mendoza was the perfect place to make Kaiken Wines, wines that embody everything a great wine ought to be.

Malbec

Most distinguished and celebrated from Argentina’s Mendoza, Malbec has seen runaway success since the early 2000s. Mendoza’s agreeable, continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters allows the perfect conditions for growing outstanding Malbec. This grape is easy to like for its lusty, deep flavors and aromas of blackberry, plum, red cherry, autumn spice and tilled earth. It’s easy to find delicious, fruit-driven, affordable everyday examples and in prices beyond, quite exceptional ones with dense, supple textures that make them capable of aging.
