Mauricio Lorca Ancestral Blend 2019
Ultrapremium unoaked blend of CABERNET FRANC, SYRAH & PETIT VERDOT 2019
With the intention of maximizing terroir expression Mauricio Lorca launches the Ancestral range. Wines were developed to express a high end quality style without using any type of Oak. Ancestral wines are the Icon version for this style of wines, made with selected grapes from a Micro terroir coming from our Vista Flores Vineyards.
The winemaking process begins with the selection of a plot of approximately 500 m2 within the Vista Flores vineyard, in the Uco Valley at 1050 meters altitude, with high trellis format, being the vineyard of the conventional type.
Selected grapes go into the vessels (Clyvers), grain by grain. From there, alcoholic fermentation takes place from 7 to 10 days at a temperature of 22º. Next is malolactic fermentation, always occurs in the same container. Once this process is finished, and once the wine is stabilized, the product remains in the clyvers until next year. Storage time is approximately 12 months, after which the wine is bottled.
