Mauricio Lorca Fantasia Malbec
A great introduction to good Argentine Malbec, from Mauricio Lorca, one of Argentina's most prominent winemakers. As well as his own wines, Mauricio is also a consultant winemaker for several other wineries in Mendoza including Enrigue Foster and Eral Bravo.
This Mauricio Lorca Fantasia Malbec is lightly oaked with great purity of fruit. As an introduction to quality Malbec at an affordable price it is a winner. Highly recommended.
Please note our current stock is the 2017 with the "Graffiti" label. It is exactly the same wine which was put under it's own label for a restaurant chain, who subsequently had some problems, so the importers need to move this through first before they can bring any more over.
Mauricio Lorca Fantasia range are a great introduction to the quality of modern Argentine wines. 30% of the Malbec was oaked for complexity and a bit of body, the rest is unoaked for purity of fruit. Big cherry flavours with a little spice. Great value for everyday drinking at this price.
