Meet Mauricio Lorca, if you love Malbec then say hi to your new best friend!

Mauricio is one of Argentina's most respected winemakers, and I've known him for years at Naked. So it’s a real coup to get him on board.

Even better, he’s making an exclusive range for us called Pequenas Parcelas, which means small parcels.

The wines come from two of Mendoza's best wine regions, Los Arboles and Vista Flores.

I've been to these vineyards - they're very high up (1,250m), which means they get amazing exposure to sunshine so the grapes ripen with loads of flavour, but also chilly nights give the wines great freshness and unbelievable drinkability.

The wines then get the VIP treatment in the winery ageing gently in French and American oak and then lots of time in bottle, to make them all silky and smooth by the time they reach your glass.

You’re getting insane value on wines of this quality, because like I said, Mauricio is your new best friend.
