In search of the perfect Malbec from Mendoza, Kaiken's winemakers and viticulturalists have identified three micro-terroirs where plantings and experiments should be carried out. Two of them are located in the Los Chacayes region – one is on the north bank while the other is on the south bank of the River Arroyo Grande, at an altitude of 1,250 meters above sea level. The viticultural and oenological procedures are the same for the two wines: hand-harvesting and hand-sorting are followed by cold soaking for four days to increase the intensity of the aromas. Fermentation happens partly spontaneously in concrete vats, where the wines are then aged for another 12 months. The only difference is in the locations. In the case of the Norte, the calcium-rich, alluvial subsoil, in which the roots cannot go deep, is typical.
