Description

Chakana Ayni Malbec is the estate’s flagship red wine made from made from grapes sourced from the Paraje Altamira sub region of Mendoza.

Chakana was founded in 2002 by the Pelizzatti family, something of a return to wine-making for the family whose ancestors had made wines in the wine-growing region of Valtellina in Italy in the 19th Century. The Chakana winery is located Agrelo, Mendoza and since 2002 the estate has grown to cover some 150 hectares with 120 hectares under vine, including their own vineyards in other areas of Mendoza 21 hectares in Mayor Drummond (Lujan de Cuyo) and two vineyards comprising 51 hectares in Altamira (Valle de Uco). In 2012 Chakana began the process of converting all of their vineyards, farming and viticultural methods over to organic / biodynamic certified. The winemaking style is based on minimal intervention with minimal use of sulphur or other additives and only indigenous yeasts.

The grapes for the Chakana Ayni Malbec are sourced from the estate’s vineyards Paraje Altamira located at an altitude of 1100m. The vineyards here are sandy loam soils over gravel. The region has cool average temperatures and nights with wide thermal amplitude. It is relatively more humid than other areas of Mendoza. The wine is aged in oak barrels and large, used, French oak 5000 litre foudres for a period of 12 months prior to bottling.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
