4 /5

The grapes used to make the Kaiken Ultra Malbec come from vineyards in the Uco Valley, where the wide variations in height and soil and varied characteristics make it possible to translate the grapes into distinctive and complex wines. The grapes are harvested from three different vineyards, each with unique characteristics. The vineyards are located at different elevations: Los Chacayes and Gualtallary at 1,300 meters above sea level and Altamira at 1,100 meters. Despite the differences in height and surface area, all vineyards have alluvial soils of the same type.

The grapes used in the Ultra Malbec were harvested by hand in April and transported in 17 kg trays to avoid damaging the grapes and preserving the quality of the fruit. The grapes are then manually selected in the winery and remove all elements that could be detrimental to the final quality. Fermentation and maceration for a month. 100% wine was transferred to French oak barrels - a third of the wine went to new barrels and the rest in barrels for the second and third use. This helps the fruity character of the wine. Aged in barrels for 12 months and the wine was slightly filtered with cartridges before bottling.

This deep, brilliant red-colored wine with purplish notes has rich aromas. The nose has interesting, spicy and floral notes - a clear expression of the Uco Valley - intertwined with black fruit aromas reminiscent of blueberries and blackberries that show the great typicity of this variety. Good structure and soft tannins require a second glass. The finish is fresh, complex and with fruit notes and subtle spicy undertones of rosemary, thyme and dry flowers.

Kaiken winery

The Caiquén is a wild goose from Patagonia that flies over the Andes between Argentina and Chile. With this cross-border flight, the Caiquén is a major challenge.

Like the Caiquén, Aurelio Montes, founder of the Chilean winery Bodega Montes, made several trips through the Andes until he rediscovered Mendoza in 2000 as a generous country full of beautiful vineyards and hardworking people. In 2001 he realized that Mendoza was the perfect place to make Kaikén wines, wines that embody everything a great wine should be.

4 /5

- Tiefes Purpurrot und vielschichtiges Bouquet mit intensivem Veilchenduft, würzigen Aromen von Waldfrüchten, Mokka (dunkle Schokolade, Kaffe) und deutlichen mineralischen Noten
- Seidige Textur, exzellente Struktur mit rundem, süßlichem Tannin, am Gaumen perfekt ausgewogen, sehr angenehm und unglaublich lang - ein wahrhaft authentischer Ausdruck des Terroirs von Mendoza! Die Trauben für den Kaiken Ultra Malbec werden schonend vergoren und der junge Wein dann zwölf Monate lang in Fässern aus 100 % französischer Eiche ausgebaut
- Um seinen ursprünglichen Geschmack so vollständig wie möglich zu bewahren, kommt Kaiken nur leicht filtriert auf die Flasche
- Am besten zu kräftigen Fleischgerichten mit gewürzten Saucen und ebenso kräftigen Käsesorten oder zu satt schokoladigen Desserts
- Allergene: enthält Sulfite

4 /5

Laat bijna geen licht door - wat een kleur! Geur van zwarte bessen, tabak en meer. Geconcentreerd fruit. Sappig, rond en fluwelig in de smaak. Afdronk heeft naast 'warme' lengte ook frisse tonen en elegantie.

4/5

I did not like the colour, with brown edges. Aromas of nuts. Strong flavours of red fruits.
A good wine to finish a meal.
We drank it at a meeting with friends.

Toasted and smoky aromas. It has a slightly salty final.
Montes Kaiken Ultra Malbec 2008, more than decent wine.
