The 2021 vintage experienced warm and humid conditions, with grapes maturing more slowly. The wine has excellent structure, concentration, and freshness, and a slightly lower alcohol level than previous years. The grapes were hand-harvested, then carefully selected and processed in small tanks. The wine underwent fermentation and maceration for about 20 days, with 40% aged in French oak barrels for six months. The result? A fruity wine with soft, silky tannins showing the freshness and depth characteristic of Mendoza Malbec. It is recommended to be enjoyed now and has the potential to age well.

In 2002 Legendary Chilean winemaker Aurelio Montes crossed the Andes. He found his perfect spot and created the Kaiken winery; named after the wild geese that, like him, migrate across the Andes. The Kaiken team, led by Juan Pablo Solis, make premium wines with a real sustainability culture and a passion for wines that reflect the true nature of Mendoza.

Ideal with rich meat dishes, enhancing their flavours with its polished tannins and vibrant fruit profile.

Originally French, the dark Malbec grape has quickly risen to international acclaim, primarily through its success in Mendoza's vineyards. In just a few decades, Malbec has become synonymous with Argentina's rich iconic red wine.

Mendoza is Argentina’s prime wine producing area. Whilst it is famous for reds, especially Malbec, there are great whites and sparkling wines too. The climate is cool and the sun strong. There’s no extremes but winemakers do fear the odd hailstorms. The climate and conditions make for bold wines. The Andes water the vineyards which are located up to a height of 2000m. The vineyards have a mix of silt, clay, and sand soils with stones from Andean erosion.
