One of the most amazing styles and a new face of Malbec.

With a delicate taste of wild strawberries and cherries, a gentle acidity and persistent tiny bubbles, “Lois” is a delight in the mouth. Mauricio Lorca is an expert in producing tasty and very popular red Malbec wines, and this wine presents the powerful Malbec in a new, elegant and refined fashion. It inherited the desirable spicy notes of Malbec, yet it is a delicate rosé produced with the traditional Charmat method. The wine stays sur lie for six months to develop more complex flavours of toast bread and develop a more refined texture. Limited production of only 12,000 bottles.

About this wine

How refreshing – quite literally – to see a different side to Malbec from time to time. Made using the Charmat method from 100% estate grown Malbec grapes, the delicate pink colour comes from free run juice with minimal skin contact.

The wine rests sur lie in small tanks for 6-7 months before bottling, giving the nose a charming richness reminiscent of wild strawberries and cherries with some nice yeasty notes. Lovely colour, persistent tiny bubbles and relatively low alcohol make this a bottle of delicious fizzy fun.

Tasting Notes

Refreshing summer fruits: wild strawberries and cherries, slightly mineral. Smoky flavours reminding of toasted bread. Complex and delicate, with high acidity and persistent bubbles.

  1. Kate

    Clean finish, fresh tasting bubbly. Unlike supermarket varieties this doesn’t have an acidic ‘bite’. Gentle bubbles. One of our favourites

  2. Ciara

    Simply divine – light fizz, great taste – Moreish.
    There was a very fresh clean fruity bouquet from opening the bottle. The light fizz and taste were a delight………..Now a favourite.
