ABOUT THIS WINE
The grapes for our KAI were selected from the best plots of our Max V vineyard in the Aconcagua Valley, 60 kilometres away from the Pacific Ocean. The region’s Mediterranean climate features a long dry season with moderately warm summer days cooled by the soft evening breezes that enter the valley from the Pacific Ocean.
Max V block is located on the south bank of the Aconcagua River in the alluvial plain, so it is fresher within the region due to its proximity to the river and minimum slope without much exposure. The soil is deep with clay to clay loam texture and high stone content of up to 80% which helps ensure excellent drainage. The nature of the subsoil is homogeneous, consisting of a coarse-grained alluvial terrace of the Aconcagua River, rich in well-rounded pebbles.
