A wine that flies over the Cordillera

Get to know more about the Kaiken Winery, whose wines are recognized all over the world.


A recognition is not what a winery seeks when it comes to making a wine, but it is beneficial when it comes to marketing it. There are many regional, national and global contests in which a winery can present its creations, but without a doubt, there are some in which getting a good score serves as a recognition of the work and, of course, is a great commercial tool. High scores mean big sales and positioning internationally.

Winery Kaiken originated in 2001 by the winemaker Aurelio Montes in a building dating back to 1920 in Vistalba, Mendoza. Since 2004, its wines have been harvesting recognitions.

The Ultra line is the wines where the desire of the team of winemakers and winemakers of Kaiken to share the experience and knowledge producing quality wines on both sides of the Andes Mountains is strongly expressed.

The wines are of great structure, complexity and long finish. With persistent tannins, firm and soft at the same time, they are characterized by their minerality, fresh fruit, elegance and sensuality. Twelve months in barrel and six months in bottle complement these great wines.

His presentation Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 received three awards: 92 points by James Suckling (James is considered internationally as one of the most influential wine critics in the world), so he was entered in the Descorchados Guide of the same year in Argentina, and obtained the Silver Medal in the Decanter China contest. The points obtained only confirm what is perceived in the cup.

A powerful ruby red color shows the dominance of the strain which, in this case, is cut with 5% malbec. It is elegant and complex, with ripe red fruits and very spicy. The palate is concentrated, with ripe, round and soft tannins.

Like the caiquenes (wild geese) flying over Patagonia between Argentina and Chile, Montes decided to cross the Andes Mountains that separates the two countries with a firm purpose: to produce great wines, combining the exceptional conditions of the Mendoza area with the work and talent of professionals from both countries.

Wines that reflect the best of the mountain range and explain why the distinctions achieved.
