Gold Medal for Kaiken Ultra Malbec 2013
Drink Business Magazine, one of the leading wine magazines in the U.K. held its Malbec Global Masters on 17 September of 2015 at The Chancery Restaurant in London. The aim of this competition is to pick out, without prejudice, the best producers of any single grape, and in doing so reveal the key characteristics of that variety at different price levels. Kaiken Ultra Malblec 2013 received one of three gold medals (scored over 90 points) in the £10 to £15 category among 24 wineries that presented their best wines.
Our Malbec Ultra 2013, is brilliant, deep ruby-red, with a wonderful display of rich aromas. The nose is enticing and spicy; a clear expression of a cool year. Black fruit aromas reminiscent of blueberries and blackberries show this wine’s great typicity. 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.
