Description

Kaiken Estate Malbec 2018

Kaiken Estate Malbec has a deep violet-red colour. Fruity aromas of red plums, blackberries and blackcurrants fill the nose, with supplementary notes of chocolate and tobacco. The aromas follow through to the medium-bodied palate, which reveals an extraordinary freshness, excellent structure and soft tannins. Intense and fruit-forward but delicate at the same time.

100% Malbec. The fruit comes from the Agrelo vineyard in Luján de Cuyo, which sits 40km to the south of Mendoza at an altitude of 950 metres. The climate is semi-arid and windy, with cold winters and warm summers. The vineyards have deep silty loam soils, which allow great vineyard development.

After hand-picking the fruit into 300kg bins, they go through a manual selection at the winery to ensure final product quality. The must ferments in small tanks under optimum conditions to preserve the characteristics and qualities of the terroir. Alcoholic fermentation and later maceration last around 20 days. 40% of the wine ages for 6 months in French oak barrels and the rest remain un-oaked to highlight the fruit flavours and aromas, and to maintain its soft and silky tannins. Slight filtering using cartridges before bottling.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

WILFRED WONG OF  – 89 POINTS

The 2018 Kaiken Estate Malbec delivers excellent density on the palate as it heads to a smooth aftertaste. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows attractive black fruit and licorice aromas and flavors. Serve it with grilled short ribs. (Tasted: July 5, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

– 85 POINTS

 Forced oak aromas create a sense of char and pasty vanilla on the nose. A rubbery palate is lively and not flabby, while woody flavors of campfire and stewed plum finish up this wine.
