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 is lightly oaked with great purity of fruit. As an introduction to quality Malbec at an affordable price it is a winner. Highly recommended.
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.
