|Producer||Colonia Las Liebres|
After six years of organic farming, Altos las Hormigas Bonarda vineyard is finding its balance. The natural environment and interaction with other species (grass, herbs, etc.), the come-back of life in the soil and the evidence of deeper roots all contribute to a very balanced wine. Notes of crunchy red fruits, fresh summer cherry tomatoes and a very distinctive note of licorice, make this a one of-a-kind red wine that combines pleasure with freshness and intensity, in a very special way for a Bonarda.
Ideal to pair with pasta Pomodoro dishes, pizza and light meats.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
They define their approachable and very affordable red 2020 Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda Clásica, a wine created in 2003 that has had great commercial success, as a bistrot or trattoria wine that they started to give relevance to the grape, the most planted in Argentina, that until then was relegated to blends and anonymous table wines. The house style is to keep moderate alcohol and good freshness that this year blends 90% of their grapes from Luján de Cuyo and, for the first time, 10% grapes from their new property Jardín de Altamira where the limestone soils and higher altitude already add tension to the wine even in a warmer year like 2020. It fermented in 3,000-liter stainless steel vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in concrete. Rating: 90+
