Country: Argentina, Vistalba ( Lujan de Cuyo) & Altamira ( Valle de Uco).
Grape Varieties:
 60% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vinification and Ageing: This complex blend undergoes a meticulous process. Grapes are hand-harvested and meticulously sorted. Following a cold soak, fermentation occurs in concrete vats using wild yeasts. Interestingly, only 30% see new French oak barrels, while the rest matures in used barrels for 15 months. This approach emphasizes the fruit character while incorporating a subtle oak influence. The warm 2020 vintage resulted in concentrated grapes and lower yields.

Tasting Notes: The wine boasts an intense ruby-red colour with captivating violet hues. The aroma is a symphony of wild berries, spices, and herbal notes, offering both intensity and elegance. The palate is full-bodied yet balanced, showcasing a delightful interplay between the fruit-forward character and subtle oak influence. Freshness lingers on the finish, hinting at the wine`s ageing potential.

Food Pairing: While the winemaker suggests embracing the "dissonance" between food and wine, the complex profile pairs well with a variety of dishes. Grilled meats, roasted vegetables, and even blue cheese would find interesting counterpoints in this wine`s fruit, spice, and tannin structure.

Kaiken Disobedience is a result of meticulous attention to detail, from vineyard selection to the ageing process. The 2020 vintage, marked by warm temperatures and lower yields, translates into a concentrated wine with exceptional ageing potential. This blend showcases the unique personality of its creators and offers a captivating drinking experience, even for those who seek a more playful interaction between food and wine.

The Grape
Known as Auxerrois in Cahors, Cot in the Loire and Malbeck in Argentina, this grape has undergone a mini renaissance in the last decade, largely fuelled by its success in South America. It used to be a staple component of the Bordeaux Blend, but it never recovered fully from the 1956 frosts and its plantings there have fallen by 75% as growers have replaced it with more fashionable, and crucially, more durable grapes.

It is still grown successfully in South West France where it’s most famous wine is Cahors. This wine used to be black as coal and tough as leather but improvements in viticulture and vinification techniques have led to riper, softer, more approachable wines that are now amongst the best of the region.

In Argentina it is widely grown and produces deep coloured wines with generous black fruit characteristics, balanced acidity and smooth tannins. It is either bottled on its own or as part of a Bordeaux blend. In Chile it is the 3rd most widely planted grape after Pais and Cabernet Sauvignon and tends to produce firmer, more tannic wines than its Argentinian neighbors. In Chile it is often blended with Merlot and Petit Verdot.
