KAIKEN ULTRA MALBEC

Grapes are sourced from both the Valle de Uco (Vistaflores, Altamira and Gualtallary) and the First Zone (Agrelo, Vistalba) regions of Mendoza. Here, soils are sandy loam, providing ideal conditions for growing Malbec. Plants are trained to the vertical shoot positioning system and yield an average of seven and a half tonnes per hectare. Most of the vines were planted prior to 1970 in vineyards 1,000 metres above sea level.

The 2014-2015 harvest presented mean temperatures well below historic averages. Only in March did temperatures approach mean or close-to-mean values. Red varieties were marked by slow ripening until late March, especially as regards berry sugar content. Then, halfway through April, ripening suddenly accelerated. This long ripening period yielded very expressive wines.

Brilliant, deep ruby-red, with a wonderful display of rich aromas.The nose is enticing and spicy with black fruit aromas of blueberries and blackberries. Good structure and soft tannins lead to a finish that is fresh, complex, and long, with fruit notes and subtle undertones of rosemary, thyme, and dry flowers.
