An honest Malbec wine straight from the Andes mountains in Mendoza: juicy, fresh and delicious

Mauricio Lorca is a pioneer in the production of unoaked premium wines. He sometimes dots the i’s and crosses the t’s with a little touch of something else. In this case Mauricio has used a little Syrah – powerful, spicy, dark Syrah – to inject a little extra pizzazz into this already very attractive entry level Malbec. The grapes are from the man’s own vineyards in his beloved Vista Flores in the eastern Uco. The key to the wine’s huge appeal is, like many good things in life, its simplicity and honesty. Simple, juicy, fresh and delicious; what’s not to like?

Description

About this wine

This wine is an honest 100% Malbec, juicy, fresh and delicious, coming from a high-altitude vineyard in prestigious Valle de Uco, Mendoza at 1050 metres above sea level, where grapes are drip-fed by snow-melt water from the Andes. With a temperature swing of 25º C between day and night, Valle de Uco inspires production of premium grapes.

Mauricio’s winery is located in Perdriel, Lujan de Cuyo, about 30 minutes away from the city of Mendoza. It boasts the latest technology in the production of wines of the highest quality: small-capacity stainless steel tanks and cement deposits, each with independent temperature controls, enabling a specific and detailed monitoring of the process. The winery obtained the ISO 22.000 certification confirming its objective of delivering premium wines at high production standard.

Mauricio demonstrates environmentally friendly production: a drip irrigation system that takes glacier water directly from the Andes uses up to 95% of the water flow, versus traditional systems that only use 40% of water flow wasting the rest.

    Absolutely love this. Perfect alone or with steak, this is really fully flavoured but doesn’t dry out your mouth.
