Kaiken Ultra Malbec 2016

The fruit for our Malbec Ultra was hand-picked into 15kg-trays in April. The process was aimed at preserving the berries, which were selected manually in the winery to ensure removal of any foreign particles capable of affecting final product quality.

VINTAGE: 2016

VARIETALS: 100% Malbec

APPELLATION: Mendoza

AGING: 12 months in French oak

ALCOHOL: 14.5%

TASTING 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.
