Kaiken Clásico Malbec

The Caiquén is a wild goose from Patagonia that flies across The Andes between Argentina and Chile. By embarking on this cross-border flight the Caiquén takes up a major challenge. Just like the Caiquén, 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 Kaikén Wines, wines that embody everything a great wine ought to be.

The Luján de Cuyo department is located on the piedmont of the Andes Mountains. It belongs to the first winemaking region of Argentina, and is home to the greatest number of cellars in the country. Kaiken’s cellar is located here, specifically in the Vistalba district.

The Kaiken Clasico Malbec has an intense ruby red colour. Fruity aromas intermingle with wildflowers and blackberries, accompanied by notes of coffee and chocolate from the oak ageing. The palate is satisfying with well lots of black fruit, balanced acidity, firm tannins and a medium-long finish. A youthful style.
