80% Malbec, 15% Bonarda and 5% Petit Verdot from the Mendoza region of Argentina.The Malbec and Petit Verdot come from Kaiken’s own vineyards in Vista Flores while the Bonarda grapes come from Agrelo.
Fruit was hand-picked and hand sorted at the winery. After pressing the must was fermented in small tanks to enhance the varietal characteristics. Alcoholic fermentation was conducted at 26ºC for seven days, followed by post-fermentation maceration at 10ºC for approximately 15 days. Finally the wine was aged for 10 months using a combination of new and used French oak barrels.
Deep brilliant purplish-red in colour, this wine has fruit notes of plums and spices such as thyme. The palate displays the silkiness of Malbec, framed by the structure and freshness of Petit Verdot. The finish reveals interesting notes of fresh fruit from Bonarda.
