More information about Obertura - Viña Kaiken

In the glass, the Obertura of Viña Kaiken presents a dense purple color. If you give it some air in the glass by swirling, this red wine reveals a high viscosity, which shows in strong church windows at the edge of the glass. Poured into a red wine glass, this red wine from Argentina offers wonderfully fragrant and complex aromas of plum, black currant, blueberry and black cherry, rounded out by black tea, cocoa bean and oriental spices contributed by barrel aging.

The Viña Kaiken Obertura delights with its elegantly dry flavor. It was bottled with only 2.4 grams of residual sugar. As you would naturally expect from a wine in the top wine range, this Argentine naturally enchants with the finest balance despite all its dryness. Taste does not necessarily need residual sugar. On the tongue, this punchy red wine is characterized by an incredibly dense, melting and velvety texture. Due to its vital fruit acidity, the Obertura reveals itself wonderfully fresh and lively on the palate. The final of this youthful red wine from the wine-growing region of Mendoza finally captivates with considerable reverberation.

Vinification of the Obertura from Viña Kaiken

The powerful Obertura from Argentina is a single-vineyard wine made from the Cabernet Franc grape variety. The grapes for this red wine from Argentina are harvested, at the time of optimal ripeness, exclusively by hand . After harvesting, the grapes are immediately taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully ground. This is followed by fermentation in small wood at controlled temperatures. After the end of fermentation, the Obertura is aged for another 12 months in French oak barrels.

Food recommendation for the Obertura from Viña Kaiken

Enjoy this red wine from Argentina ideally tempered at 15 - 18 ° C as an accompanying wine to pumpkin casserole, red onions stuffed with couscous and apricots or spinach gratin with almonds.
