Aventura Malbec Los Chacayes ‘Sur’, Kaiken Ultra, Uco Valley, Mendoza
Tastes like: Black Fruit. Rosemary. Thyme. Dried Flowers. Spice. Silky Tannins.
Kaiken are one Mendoza’s pioneering producers, forever seeking to push Malbec’s potential at high altitude by exploring more adventurous sub-regions and specific vineyard plots.
Los Chacayes was classified as a GI in 2017 (a 'Geographical Indication' signifys an area of particular quality). Kaiken planted vineyards here between 2011 and 2016 at 1,250m - the highest altitude of the region.
This location provides a climate of warm summer days and cool nights, which helps to slow ripening and maintain a fresh acidity. The vines in Los Chacayes Sur sit on free- draining sandy-loam soils causing the roots to penetrate deep into the soil in order to access water and nutrients, which results in a more powerful depth of fruit concentration.
The result is a super premium Malbec that provides oodles of bang for your buck - we were blown away when we tried it and we’re sure you will too.
