CASE OF 6 BOTTLES
Decanter World Wine Awards 2020 - GOLD.
This wine has beautiful concentration and an intense perfume balanced by a fresh acidity. This is a result of the high altitude site (1350 m above sea level) in Vista Flores in the Uco Valley where the Cabernet Franc grapes are cultivated.
The grapes are sourced from Valle de Uco, one of Mendoza’s most renowned sub-regions. Kaiken’s vineyard, located in Las Chacayes, sits at 1,250 metres above sea level. Here, sunny days are followed by cool nights – this slows the growing season and allows Kaiken to obtain excellent grapes with wonderful freshness. The bush-trained vines are planted on deep soils which are mostly alluvial and are largely made up of pebbles and rocks.
This Cabernet Franc is intense ruby red in colour with elegant purple shades. The nose is complex, with aromas of ripe redcurrants, fresh plums and red pepper combined with spicy notes of black pepper, wild thyme and a hint of menthol. On the palate, it has beautiful fruit concentration balanced by fresh acidity and minerality, reflecting the high-altitude location of the vineyards. The long, elegant finish displays red fruit and spicy notes.
