Mauricio Lorca is a young Argentinean winemaker, who very successfully produces the wines of Bodegas Enrique Foster and Viña Alicia. Under the labels Ópalo and Poético he now launched his own limited series of high quality wines. The Ópalo wines represent a new very exclusive way of enjoying wine, concentrating on the authentic fruit aromas of the grapes by not using oak throughout the whole elaboration process. Pure varietal wines that respect the expressions of the varieties from which they come from. These products are unique in their character and mark a new style of this noble drink. For all those who like the style of the Ópalo wines but miss a light oak touch, Mauricio now offers his new blends, aged in oak barrels, named Poético. The Fantasía label, designed for daily consumption, rounds up this winery’s interesting portfolio. The key of the project begins with the vineyard management. The own vineyard in the Uco-Valley was custom-prepared with a high density of 6.850 to 7.400 plants per hectare, especially suited for the production of very high-quality grapes. The right clones were selected and a yield per plant of 1kg is obtained, the perfect balance to ensure that all the strength of the plant is passed on to the fruit, thus obtaining perfect concentration of aromas, colour and taste. Lorca wines are faithful representatives of the respective varieties. Part of the bodega’s philosophy is of course also, that all the wines are only produced in those years, when the quality of the grapes meets Mauricio Lorca’s extreme quality standards. Welcome to Lorca project, a new way of enjoying Argentinean wines and a new way of enjoying nature.
