Deep ruby with a touch of garnet on the rim. This is classic Vajra, with lovely perfumes of dried rose petals, orange peel and violets. On the palate, there is plenty of fine grained, ripe, tannin in the characteristic Nebbiolo style, and lots of elegant, dark cherry fruit with savoury notes adding more depth. Long and perfumed on the finish.
Bright ruby-garnet in colour with a wonderfully perfumed nose, with aromas of orange peel, flowers, red fruits, dried plums, pine-needles and brushwood. On the palate it has lovely Nebbiolo structure, with plenty of fine, ripe tannins, elegant acidity and dark plum and savoury characters, with a herbal perfume on the long finish. Softer and more approachable in youth than the Bricco delle Viole, it has the purity and balance characteristic of the Vajra wines.
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 Valle de Uco, 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. Kaiken's own vineyards supply 70% of their production requirements and 30% is from vineyards that they control.
The grapes used to make this wine are sourced from both the Valle de Uco (Vistaflores, Altamira and Gualtallary) and the First Zone (Agrelo, Vistalba) regions of Mendoza.
Grapes were all hand harvested into small, 10kg bins and manually sorted before the winemaking process. After a month of fermentation (including pre and post fermentation maceration) the wine was then transferred to French oak barrels of first, second and third use for 12 months of barrel ageing. It was then naturally fined and very gently filtered before bottling.
Brilliant, deep ruby-red, with a wonderful display of rich aromas.The nose is enticing and spicy with black fruit aromas of blueberries and blackberries. Good structure and soft tannins lead to a finish that is fresh, complex, and long, with fruit notes and subtle undertones of rosemary, thyme, and dry flowers.
This wine has a long ageing potential but is drinking well now. Perfect with complex dishes such as red meat, game (especially venison and wild-boar) and cheeses.
