Mauricio Lorca Gran Malbec, Finca Los Altepes, Valle de Uco, 2019

Argentina

Grape Variety

Malbec

In our third Cellar this year, we mark our 50th-anniversary celebrations with an exceptional wine from one of Opimian’s most loved winemakers, Mauricio Lorca. It is crafted from Argentina’s flagship red wine variety, Malbec, sourced from high-density vines grown 1,250 metres above sea level. At these heights, a 25-degree variation between day and night temperatures allows the fruit to mature slowly, achieving optimal flavour and balance. The Gran Malbec is a perfect example of how the wines across Lorca’s portfolio exude his passion for excellence. Its deep ruby purple hue foreshadows a wine rich with notes of earthy blue and black fruit. A year of maturation in both 90% French and 10% American barrels adds the warmth of wood spice. The generous fruit core is matched by well-structured tannins and refreshing acidity. Ready to savour and will continue to evolve in cellar. 2023-2029 – LW
