About this deal

For the beef, place the soy sauce, chilli, garlic and oil in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. The Gualtallary Vineyard is planted on poor calcareous soils with Malbec, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir at 4,265 metres. This is one of the highest areas in Mendoza, where the ultra-cool climate makes intense, extremely elegant wines. Kaiken Malbec Ultra is deep ruby in the glass. It’s a very dark wine with little to no light able to shine through. The high degree of development achieved by viticulture, added to new research promoted by a generation of restless producers, has led to the identification of micro-regions with different terroirs, reflecting the diverse character of Argentine viticulture. It is specifically in Malbec where this quality is best appreciated.

Meaning ‘first’ in the Pehuenche dialect, ‘Mai’ is Kaiken’s top wine. Sourced from 100-year-old vines in Vistalba, this 100% Malbec is structured and powerful yet balanced. It is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, which lends the wine a complexity and roundness that carries through to the finish. The wine is ready to be enjoyed now but has the intensity and structure to age for the next decade. Grapes for Kaiken’s traditional method sparkling wine are sourced from the renowned sub-region of Gualtallary in the Uco Valley. Here limestone-rich soils and altitudes of around 1,400 metres above sea level provide optimal conditions for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.string(1821) "In the centre west of the territory, at the foot of the Andes mountain range, Mendoza holds 75% of the total vineyards in Argentina and the largest number of wineries in the country. This makes it the most important wine province and one of the main producing centres in the world.

In the same way, legendary Chilean winemaker Aurelio Montes crossed the Andes to make wines in Mendoza. Aurelio saw the enormous potential of the region for premium viticulture and, after several exploratory trips, founded the Kaiken winery in 2002. His aim was simple: to make great wines in Mendoza and, in doing so, to show the best of both sides of the Andes. Kaiken suggests serving this Malbec “with casseroles or not too elaborate red meat dishes, or just enjoy with ripe cheese.”The 2018 is deep red in colour, with violet tones. On the nose, it displays fruity aromas of plum and cherry combined with spicy notes of tobacco and cinnamon. An elegant and complex wine, with soft tannins and a long lingering finish.

The Kaiken Clasico Malbec palate is smooth, with well-balanced acidity, round and elegant tannins and a medium-long finish. On the palate, Kaiken's Malbec starts pleasantly dry, grippy and aromatic. Some wines are dry on the label, others really are. This red wine is one of the latter, as it was bottled with only 1.8 grams of residual sugar. On the tongue, this well-balanced red wine is characterized by an incredibly dense texture. Due to its concise fruit acid, the Kaiken Malbec is impressively fresh and lively on the palate. The final of this youthful red wine from the wine-growing region of Mendoza finally captivates with considerable reverberation. Vinification of the Kaiken Kaiken Malbec The 70 hectare Agrelo Vineyard in Luján de Cuyo, planted on deep silty loam soils at 950 metres with Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonada, Cabernet Franc, Marselan, Ancellota, Semillon, and Sauvignon Blanc. It produces floral and fruity wines with smooth tannins. Not surprisingly, this particular wine and vintage is rated over 90 points by several industy publications. Heat a large ovenproof frying pan until hot, carefully lift the beef out of the marinade (discarding the marinade), place the beef in the pan and sear on each side until brown.The Kaiken Malbec: Of a deep violet color, warm in the nose, with notes of ripe fruit and traces of tobacco and butterscotch. In the mouth it displays intensity, with strong, fleshy tannins; while at the same time juicy and enveloping; with a long, persistent finish.

Kaiken Winery is located in the district of Vistalba and relies on state-of-the-art technology. All of its wines are made with grapes sourced from estates distributed across the very best winemaking areas in the provinces of Mendoza (such as Vistalba, Agrelo and Vista Flores) and Salta (Cafayate).Per the tasting notes I received with this wine, fruit was sourced from the Uco Valley. Three different vineyards were selected as sources due to their individual characteristics and superior terroirs. Cover and grill for another 30 minutes. Shift the ribs around (but keep them bony side down) and spray once more with sherry. Cover and grill for 30 minutes longer, until the meat is tender. Replenish the coals as necessary. Kaikenes are wild geese, native to Patagonia, that fly across the Andes between Chile and Argentina. In the same way, Montes, the Chilean winery, crossed the Andes to set up in Mendoza. Their vineyards are situated in the heart of Mendoza and further to the south in the Uco Valley, where many of the premium producers are now sourcing their fruit. The focus is primarily on Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, a variety that has been somewhat forgotten as Malbec has surfed one wave of success after another in the past decade. As a result, there are many old vineyards in Mendoza that produce excellent fruit. The Kaiken Mendoza Malbec Clásico is made from fruit grown in the Agrelo region, 1050 metres above sea level. The Altamira Vineyard in the San Carlos region of the Uco Valley is planted at 1,200 metres with Malbec and Chardonnay on calcareous soils with sand, lime and stones and produces wines with a dark fruit profile and marked minerality. The 28.5 Vistalba Vineyard in Luján de Cuyo planted at 1,050 metres above sea level on alluvial derived sandy loam, pebbly soils with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay, makes well-structured elegant and complex wines.
