This wine celebrates a collaboration of many years between wellknown Argentinian chef Francis Mallmann and Kaiken estate.
Known for his distinct style of open fire cooking, ably captured in the first season of Netflix’s Chef’s Table, Mallman’s unstoppable and unique nature is captured by the name ‘Disobedience’. The grapes are sourced from Kaiken’s vineyards in Altamira in the Uco Valley and Vistalba in the Luján de Cuyo region. Vistalba’s chalk and sandy soil, at 1,200m altitude, imparts an elegant and fruitdriven character to the wine.The alluvial and loam soil of the Luján de Cuyo forces vines to penetrate deep into the soil, contributing deep fruit concentration and tannin.
The wine has a complex character of vibrant red fruit complemented by notes of graphite and sweet spices. Full-bodied with fine-grained tannins, the wine has a persistent, rich finish.
