Kaiken Terroir Series Malbec 2017

Kaiken Terroir Series wines are the product of our search for innovative terroirs in Mendoza, Argentina, from which our winemaker Aurelio Montes Jr. sources  and selects the best grapes to craft appealing and distinctive wines. This wine is a blend of Ma/bee, Bonarda and Petit Verdot, aged for ten months in French oak. The Ma/bee gives hints of violet on the nose, together with a delightful soft texture on the palate. Bonarda brings floral character, and the small amount of Petit Verdot adds firmness and body.

TASTING NOTES:

Our Kaiken Terroir Series Malbec is an elegant yet youthful wine, perfect for enjoying with a range of dishes, especially red meats. In the glass, the wine is an intense, bright red color with violet hues, while the nose displays pronounced notes of plum and touches of spice and thyme. On the palate, there’s the silky texture of Malbec, backed up by the structure and freshness of the Petit Verdot; the finish reveals interesting fresh fruits, which are the Bonarda’s main contribution.
