Mauricio Lorca Poetico Malbec
In its youth, the Mauricio Lorca Poetico Malbec is a hefty, muscular beast that gradually takes on an increasingly silky texture as time passes in the bottle. It's why we've only brought in the 2009 vintage. When we tasted this Malbec we were impressed by the amount of profound dark fruit that hits you from the off with notes of assorted spice, mint, black pepper and dark chocolate gunning up the rear. The use of oak is judicious and handsome, resulting in a really impressive, elegant wine showing so much complexity and finesse. The added use of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah just rounds this wine off nicely so it would work wonderfully well with a succulent roasted rib of beef.
