2020 Altos Las Hormigas Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda (750ml)

Bonarda from Mendoza, Argentina


Aromas of brambleberries, violets, herbs and licorice. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, powdery and chewy tannins. Flavorful with a pleasant, lightly bitter, floral character. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

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. It has a very expressive nose with notes of wild herbs and plants, very juicy and tasty, primary and straightforward, medium-bodied and balanced. This is very easy to drink and really very good for what it is. 115,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2020.
