“For a long time, we looked to introduce a really good entry-level white to the range, but we wanted something a bit different, not just another Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay blend, and this didn’t come easy. So, when Mauricio Lorca told us he’d purchased a vineyard in the east of Mendoza planted with old vine Pedro Ximenez, our eyebrows were raised. To be honest, we were expecting something clean, zippy and fresh, but fairly neutral on the nose. What a pleasant surprise, then, to find a wine offering a delightful flurry of inviting aromatics – lots of juicy-ripe citrus fruit, yes, but also lifted herbaceous notes, dried flowers and summer straw. This lovely little wine is more like an Albariño than a run-of-the-mill Pinot Grigio, with lots to get stuck into, great balance and structure and an excellent finish. Nice one Mauricio!”
