Bodega Enrique Foster
In the heart of Mendoza lies Lujan de Cuyo, considered one of the best locations for Malbec. Bodega Enrique Foster has two blocks of vines in this area, the first planted in 1919, pre-phylloxera and therefore ungrafted, the second, younger vines planted in 1966 – old vines by European standards, even if not by the winery’s own strict definition. Ally to the vine age the vineyard location at 3,000 feet above sea level and minimal rainfall, all the ingredients are in place for intense fruit flavours with great concentration.
The objective of Bodega Enrique Foster is to produce the best Malbec in Argentina and no expense has been spared from the latest vineyard management to the new French oak barrels in the underground cellars of the state-of- the-art gravity-flow winery.
The wine is made by one of the stars of Argentine winemaking, Mauricio Lorca, who’s impressive CV includes companies such as Bodega Esmeralda, Luigi Bosca and Finca La Celia where he produced several award-winning wines.
