The word "kai" (Kai) with Chilean dialect of Spanish translates as "plant". A wonderful wine "Kai", is embodied in reality mechnoy company Errazuriz, strives to create a world-class wine from grapes Carmenere, grown in the valley of the Aconcagua. Shown on the label of this grape leaf symbolizes the natural style of wine and its naturalness. In the manufacture of "Kai" to increase the complexity and depth of flavor and taste of wine grapes Carmenere added to a small part of Syrah (5%) and Petit Verdot (3%). Syrah brings shades of black fruit sweetness and light tannins, and Petit Verdot improves the structure adds acidity and notes of spice on the palate.
For the production of wine used grapes grown on the lands of the valley of the Aconcagua in the vineyards under the name Max II and Max V at an altitude of 580 and 600 feet above sea level. The vines were planted in them in 1992 and 1993 respectively, and currently have a yield of not more than 2 kg per plant, which makes it possible to obtain the total energy of berries with concentrated color and flavor. Crop is harvested by hand and gently delivered to the winery, where he twice sorted on a special table to avoid falling into the future wort plant impurities and defective fruit. After pressing, the fermentation process occurs, which occurs in the stainless steel tank at a temperature of 26-30 ° C. When this is done periodically remontazh. For varieties Carmenere and Syrah maceration lasts 25-28 days, and Petit Verdot is in contact with the skins of 6 days. After fermentation the wine is placed on 20 months in French oak barrels, of which 98% - new. Due to the long term maturation "Kai" takes on a unique character and a nice balance of fruit and oak.

Ambitious goal winery is not only producing the best Chilean wines, but also to find among the hundred best wines in the world and one hundred best-selling wines in the world. And I must say that this goal is realized perfectly without any marketing moves that are just not necessary - because quality wines Errazuris speaks for itself.
