Mauricio Lorca Fantasia Torrontes - 2006(W-320)

Mauricio Lorca Fantasia Torrontes
Tangy, Zesty Floral, Aromatic

Winery Story

Mauricio Lorca - chief winemaker at Enrique Foster and formerly of Chilean-owned giant Finca La Celia, Catena, and Luigi Bosca - creates his... (more...) own wines using grapes from his high-altitude vineyards in Vistaflores, Uco Valley. Young and highly talented, Lorca is one of the few Argentine winemakers who believes that the true fruit and terroir of a wine should be allowed to shine through. His production levels are extremely low - he produced 1,000 cases of each of the Fantasia wines, 1,000 cases of each of the Ópalo wines, 875 cases of Poético Cabernet, and 1,100 cases of Poético Malbec in 2005 - and his plans don’t include growing much larger. This is a bodega to watch; Lorca is a star on the rise.

Tasting Note

This delicious light white wine has a tropical nose of lychee, rose petals, and mangoes, as well as a finish reminiscent of peach pits. It d... (more...)oesn’t have a trace of oak (fermented in stainless steel), and with its well balanced acidity and hint of sweetness before the dry finish, it would go beautifully with spicy Mexican or Thai food.
