Available Now!

Alcohol: 14%

Grape(s): 100% Malbec

Localization: Uco Valley, Argentina

Tasting Notes: Deep ruby in color. Shy aromas of dark cherry, forest petals, plum, bright raspberries, warm oak, and vanilla. Continuing to the palate, flavors of blackberry, sandalwood, cedar, with background flavors of graphite, earth, mushroom, and wet leaves. This is a dry wine with medium acidity, medium-plus chalky tannins, and body. It unfolds showing a range of complexity and intensity, highlighting fruity notes nuanced by production and bottle aging notes which all linger for a medium-plus finish. 

Food pairing: Ideal to enjoy dishes of grilled and smoked red meat, well-seasoned fish, grilled vegetables, stews, empanadas, and pasta with intense flavor sauces. It may also be combined with desserts that have chocolate-based preparations.

The Domain: In 2003, the visionary Enrique Foster invited Mauricio Lorca to join him on an extraordinary journey, guided by their shared love for Malbec. Mauricio Lorca, a brilliant winemaker, took the reins of production, and the rest is history. Under their watchful eyes, the winery in Perdriel, Luján de Cuyo, has become a hub of innovation, embracing new winemaking techniques and sustainable practices.

As one steps into Mauricio Lorca's winery in Perdriel, they are greeted by lush Malbec vines, a testament to the deep-rooted passion for this noble grape. The winery itself blends modern aesthetics with classical charm, surrounded by enchanting gardens designed by a landscape artist. The backdrop? The majestic Andes Mountain range, a paradise on earth.

The winery holds ISO 22.000 certification for its production process. Their organic wines adhere to the highest organic production standards, and their sustainability efforts have earned recognition both nationally and internationally.

Now, the Rockstar behind the wines: Mauricio Lorca, a true winemaking prodigy, has an illustrious career that began under the tutelage of legendary figures like Nicolas Catena, Paul Hobbs, and José Galante (aka the father of modern enology in Argentina). At just 24 years old, he became the head winemaker of Luigi Bosca. His global adventures in the world's finest vineyards reinforced his belief in Mendoza's potential to create world-class wines.
