Kaiken Ultra Malbec 2017 750ml
Origin: Mendoza, Argentina
Varietal: 100% Malbec
Aging: 12 months in French oak
Notes: This deep brilliant red-colored wine with purplish tones displays rich aromas. The nose has interesting spicy and floral notes —a clear expression of a cool year—intertwined with black fruit aromas reminiscent of blueberries and blackberries that show this variety’s great typicity. Good structure and soft tannins call for a second glass. The finish is fresh, complex, and persistent with fruit notes and subtle spicy undertones of rosemary, thyme, and dry flowers.
Vineyards: The fruit for our Malbec Ultra was sourced from the Uco Valley. Variations in altitude and soiltype result in grapes with distinct characteristics that give unique and highly-complex wines. Grapes are sourced from three vineyards with unique characteristicsand superior quality terroirs. These vineyards are grown at different altitudes: Vistaflores at 1,350 m.a.s.l.; Gualtallary at 1,300 m.a.s.l.;and Altamira at 1,100 m.a.s.l. In spite of location and altitude variations, all three soil types are similar: alluvial soil with some sand and silt on surface layers on top of very rocky layers that provide excellent drainage and ideal conditions to grow highly concentrated grapes.
