The grapes used for the Kaiken Estate come from the vineyard in Agrelo, 60 km from Mendoza. Most of those vines were planted before 2005. The vineyard is located 950 meters above sea level. This area is warmer than the Uco Valley, resulting in more fruity notes and very soft tannins.

The fruit was picked by hand and then manually selected in the winery to ensure the quality of the final product. The must was fermented in small tanks under optimal conditions. The alcoholic fermentation and maceration lasted about 20 days. Only 40% of the wine is aged in French oak barrels for six months to emphasize fruity aromas and obtain silky tannins. The wine is only lightly filtered. The youth of the Kaiken Malbec Estate can be appreciated in its vibrant purple-red color. Red fruit flavors such as plum and blackberry complement notes of chocolate and tobacco. On the palate, this wine reveals an extraordinary freshness and soft tannins. The Kaiken Malbec is a full rich red wine from the Argentine Mendoza area. The soft tannins and beautiful smoked notes of oak are nicely integrated by the 6 months aging in new and used French oak barrels.

Kaiken Winery

The Caiquén is a wild goose from Patagonia that flies over the Andes between Argentina and Chile. The Caiquén poses a major challenge when entering into this cross-border flight.

Like the Caiquén, Aurelio Montes, founder of the Chilean winery Bodega Montes, made several trips through the Andes until he rediscovered Mendoza in 2000 as a generous land full of beautiful vineyards and hard-working people. In 2001, he realized that Mendoza was the perfect place to make Kaikén wines, wines that epitomize everything a great wine should be.
