About the Wine

In 2003, the visionary Enrique Foster invited Mauricio Lorca to join him on an extraordinary journey, guided by their shared love for Malbec. Mauricio Lorca, a brilliant winemaker, took the reins of production, and the rest is history. Under their watchful eyes, the winery in Perdriel, Luján de Cuyo, has become a hub of innovation, embracing new winemaking techniques and sustainable practices.

As one steps into Mauricio Lorca's winery in Perdriel, they are greeted by lush Malbec vines, a testament to the deep-rooted passion for this noble grape. The winery itself blends modern aesthetics with classical charm, surrounded by enchanting gardens designed by a landscape artist. The backdrop? The majestic Andes Mountain range, a paradise on earth.

The winery holds ISO 22.000 certification for its production process. Their organic wines adhere to the highest organic production standards, and their sustainability efforts have earned recognition both nationally and internationally.

Now, the Rockstar behind the wines: Mauricio Lorca, a true winemaking prodigy, has an illustrious career that began under the tutelage of legendary figures like Nicolas Catena, Paul Hobbs, and José Galante (akathe father of modern enology in Argentina). At just 24 years old, he became the head winemaker of Luigi Bosca. His global adventures in the world's finest vineyards reinforced his belief in Mendoza's potential to create world-class wines.

And so, the Inspirado Red Blend was born. This wine is a perfect example of how blending different grape varieties can create something truly remarkable. If you appreciate red blends and pay attention to the details, you'll be able to taste the unique characteristics of each grape in this exceptional blend.

Production of this wine is extremely limited. Only the best grapes from the harvest are carefully selected, one cluster at a time, to ensure the highest quality. Mauricio Lorca's approach is all about demonstrating that quality comes from expert vineyard management and modern winemaking techniques that faithfully express the natural flavors of the grapes. In total, only 6,500 bottles of this wine have been produced.

The name "Inspirado" says it all – it's an inspired creation that captures the essence of the grapes that make Mendoza famous.

These grapes come from the Los Altepes Vineyard, located in Los Árboles, Valle de Uco, Mendoza, at an impressive altitude of 1,250 meters above sea level.

Aging: 18 months in new French (85%) and American (15%) oak barrels. 

Tasting Notes: Surprising and delicious blend of Malbec, Syrah, Petit verdot, Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet Franc. 

In your glass, you'll notice a deep, almost black-red color. It smells delightful, with the scent of ripe black fruits, spices, and a hint of chocolate and vanilla from the oak. Excellent body. Sweet and full in the mouth. Elegant and balanced wine with a long-lasting finish that leaves a lasting impression. If you love red blends, here’s a masterful example.


This offers a complex impression from the outset with a rich and ripe array of dark plums, blackberries, and cherries. The palate has a rich, dark-fruit core with plush tannins and plenty to offer at the finish. Drink or hold. ~93 James Suckling

~91 Tim Atkin, Master of Wine

This Inspirado Blend is a selection of vineyards of all the red varieties (except Bonarda) that the winery has in the Los Altepes vineyard, in the Los Arboles area, in the Uco Valley. The wine feels focused on notes of ripe red fruits, herbal tones and sweet spices, soft and round tannins, the sensation of voluptuousness, but without tiring. The 18 months in new barrels have provided toasted, but subtle tones. A juicy, fluid and very elegant and deep wine. ~94 Descorchados (v. 2020)
