Bodega Mauricio Lorca
Since his decision to leave behind a promising career in medicine Mauricio Lorca has set about attempting to prove that top quality Malbec’s can be produced in Mendoza without the need for oak ageing. His range is packed full of delicious wines that display a purity of fruit that is not often associated with Argentine Malbec, fully utilising the natural freshness of his grapes, owing to the high altitude at which he cultivates his vines.
From his small base in Luján de Cuyo, he runs a no-frills operation based on passion and a serious workethic that comes across in the quality of his wines.
The ‘Recoleta’ – named after the cemetery in Buenos Aires in which Eva Peron is buried – is an elegant, easy-drinking style Malbec, full of dark brambly fruit and a soft finish.
