|Bodegas Y Vinedos Mauricio Lorca Mauricio Lorca is one of Argentina's (and all South America's) best winemakers. He has been head winemaker at the highly successful Enrique Foster winery for many years, and also has his own winery and vineyards in Vista Flores (Uco Valley, Mendoza), renowned as one of the best vineyard sites in all Argentina. On top of this he is also consultant winemaker for a host of other wineries.Mauricio is certainly one of the most able and talented winemakers in Argentina and he is now producing some exceptional wines under his own label (as well as for Enrique Foster). His vineyards are ideally sited, and at altitude (like nearly all of Argentina) with a fantastic microclimate of sunshine, variation between night and day temperatures, minimal frost or hail, with snow melt from the Andes bringing down minerals for the vines. He utilises low planting density in his vineyards to produce concentrated wines, fermenting in concrete tanks allowing him to produce exceptional unwooded wines for his Opalo range. Mauricio is famous for his bold style of non use of oak allowing the purity of the fruit to shine, a method very few producers are brave enough to adopt as any faults can't then be hidden by oaking!But he isn't against oaking wines, far from it in fact, as he uses French oak barriques for aging his Poetico range, and for adding a little oak to his Fantasia range.Look out for Mauricio's stunning Enrique Foster Limited Edition Malbec 2006 below (at the end of his "Lorca" branded wines).Mauricio Lorca Website|
