Just like the Caiquén, Aurelio Montes, founder of the Chilean winery Bodega Montes, made several trips across the Andes until, in 2000 he rediscovered Mendoza as a generous land filled with superb vines and hardworking people. In 2001 he realized Mendoza was the perfect place to make Kaikén Wines, wines that embody everything a great wine ought to be.
Valle de Canota, established in 2019 as a distinct wine growing region, is a nearly unexplored area located in Las Heras, 20 miles northwest of the city of Mendoza. Surrounded by the Andean foothills, the Canota Valley is small micro-terroir that has a desert climate and is enclosed by the Villavicencio Reserve. The Valle de Canota is a hidden wine paradise with remarkable extreme temperatures with less than 3 inches of annual rainfall that allows for these Malbecs to be harvested an entire month earlier than Los Chacayes Norte and Sur. The 2019 Kaiken Aventura Valle de Canota Malbec expresses soft round tannins that is combined with delicious notes of cherries and dark fruit.
