Fantasia Cabernet Franc - Mauricio Lorca
This product is currently sold out.
In the humble opinion of Las Bodegas, Mauricio Lorca is probably the best producer of mid price single varietal wines in Mendoza. This newest addition to the Fantasia range brings all the typicity and fruit purity that we expect from such a great winemaker, and has the bonus of being made from our favourite 'new' grape, Cabernet Franc. We need wines like this to spread the good word about Argentine Cab Franc and this really delivers with it's delicious sour cherry and juicy strawberry flavours.
“Elegant and inviting aromas of blackberry, violets and dried herbs. The palate imparts a zesty freshness, with refined tannins that are sustained through to a pleasing finish.”
90 / 100 Paz Levinson, Decanter Magazine South American Cabernet Franc, October 2018 (2017 vintage)
A great value wine that demonstrates the increasing success Argentina is having with varietal Cabernet Franc. Lorca vineyards are in Vista Flores at 1050 metres, ensuring great ripeness and perfume in the inky, boysenberry and violet fruit which is left to shine, as only 30% of the wine was aged in oak, for just six months.
