About the Wine

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.

Reviews

An unaged Cabernet from Vista Flores defined by its terroir: sour cherry, mint and black currant plus intense herbal notes. Juicy and flavorful on the palate, showing fine, active tannins that supply energy without getting in the way. A smooth wine with a tasty, long finish. ~90 Vinous Media

This has attractive aromas of violets with a wealth of red berries and plums. The fresh, fleshy palate has a deep, velvety finish with a gently smoky edge. Drink now. ~90 James Suckling
