Kaiken Ultra Malbec 2007
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)

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.
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.
