Elisabeth Checa: Los Buenos Vinos Argentinos 2017

We reproduce Elisabeth Checa’s comments on our Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda Clásica 2015 in the original language they were published, to respect her exact thoughts on the wine: “Volvieron a un estilo austero. Un vino de verano, con una acidez marcada, fruta roja muy fresca. No es una señora gorda, tiene una seducción filosa, atractiva. Textura sedosa que lo convierte en muy bebible a la hora de las pastas con bolognesa.”

Robert Parker: 90 points

ROBERT PARKER – THE WINE ADVOCATE | Luis Gutiérrez Argentina 2016 Report: “The Sky is the Limit”. 90 pts ColoniaLasLiebres Bonarda  Clásica. Luis Gutiérrez wrote: “I had not crossed paths with this wine in a while, so I was looking forward to tasting the 2015 Bonarda Colonia Las Liebres, a sure value and very representative of the grape. It’s produced from their own estate vineyards. They aim for a fresher expression of the variety here, with fine-grained tannins, blending grapes from different zones in the province; the grapes are fermented in stainless steel and kept in cement vats, never in contact with oak. 2015 was very warm towards the end of the cycle, and the harvest was 15 days earlier than anticipated. The nose is clean and the palate is soft, a light Bonarda without any oak, a juicy, fresh and easy to drink expression of the variety. It was harvested early and not extracted. The price is almost unbelievable; one to buy by the case.”

5 South American Wine Varieties You Need to Know

Bonarda is back. By the way, the Bonarda in Argentina is a different grape than the Bonarda from Italy and is also known as Charbono, Corbeau or Douce Noir.

Traditional Bonarda

Historically pipped as Malbec’s little brother, it was often seen as an alternative to Malbec, and vinified in the same way. More traditional Bonarda wines are jammy and fruit-forward coming from warmer regions.

Fresh, flirty Bonarda

Treated with shorter maceration periods and some whole cluster carbonic maceration, this new clan of Bonarda are lighter, fruitier and perfect to enjoy chilled over lunch. The rise in light sparkling pink wines coming from the variety is also something to cast your eye on.

  • Key regions: Lujan de Cuyo (the sub-regions of Vistalba and Ugarteche), Tupungato.
  • Names to look out for: Alto Las Hormigas “Colonia Las Liebres”
