Ancestral Malbec 2019

Mauricio Lorca

The perfect Malbec? Quite possibly. Only 2,500 bottles of this amazing wine were made and Ucopia managed to secure just 100 of those. Fermented in clyvers (ceramic barrels), this is 100% hand-made by Mauricio and represents the pinnacle of a distinguished career of pushing boundaries. This is no monster, a million miles away from the brutish blockbusters of old; it is fragrant and pretty on the nose with hints of black cherries, quince, hazelnuts, black peppercorns and saddle leather. Still in its infancy, this wine already boasts wonderful finesse in the mouth with firm, fine tannins, clever natural acidity and quietly bombastic fruit concentration.

Yes, it is expensive. Yes, it is magical.
