Mauricio Lorca Natural Cabernet Franc Malbec NAS
A brand new wine from Mauricio Lorca. As I’ve known Mauricio for many years now, when he decided to produce a sulphite free wine we were the obvious choice to market it so we bought roughly half of the very limited quantity he produced.
It’s hand picked and hand selected fruit from his best vineyards at Finca los Inicios in the Uco Valley at over 1000 meters altitude. The wine is superb as you would expect from Mauricio. Being sulphite free is a bonus.
Deep opaque ruby with good legs and a natural nose. Big concentrated black and red fruit flavours with subtle liquorice and a hint of violet coming in on the long finish. Medium weight and body, smooth and velvety on the palate with the perfect combination of power from the Malbec and elegance from the Cabernet Franc producing a superbly balanced wine well suited to food (but great on it’s own too).
A new venture for Mauricio launching a tiny production handcrafted natural wine with no added sulphites.
It's a beauty as you would expect when pairing one of the finest vineyards in Argentina with one of the country's best winemakers, then letting the grapes do the talking. Minimal intervention and no manipulation or additives.
