La Publicación LAN in destaca Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda

Es probable que el Malbec argentino, con justicia, sea una de las grandes vedettes del vino en el mercado mundial. Es la cepa de moda, es lo que los turistas prueban con fruición cada vez que visitan Mendoza.

Sin embargo, Argentina no es sólo malbec. También tiene otras cepas cuyo potencial aún está por descubrirse, entre ellas la bonarda. ¿Le suena bonarda? Colonia Las Liebres de bodega Altos Las Hormigas es puro jugo para beberlo fresco en verano.

JOY Magazine Highlights Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda

JOY, Junio 2012:

Todo La Verdad Sobre La Bonarda.

Colonia Las Liebres $58
Alberto Antonini, el crack de la enología italiana, es uno de los que le puso fichas fuertes a la Bonarda desde su arribo a la Argentina, a fines de la década del 90. Su criatura especial es este vino que elabora en Altos Las Hormigas y que mareó la pauta de cómo debía ser el varietal cuando llegó al mercado, allá con su cosecha 2003.

The Wine Snob – Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda – zing!

If the Colonia Bonarda could make a noise, it would be “ZING!”  Why??  I’ll level with you, kiddies- this is probably the best $10 wine I’ve had this year.  I wouldn’t lie.  It really is. ..

Why, you ask, am I imagining this wine saying “Zing?”  Because it is just screaming “In ya FACE!” or “BOOYA!”  but I think Zing is a much cooler way to say it.   I learned the term Zing a few years ago from my friend Greg, who was and still is a master of Zings.  For those of you who don’t know, a well-timed Zing is pretty priceless- if someone makes a stupid comment that you can quickly, succinctly and intelligently put down and then you smile and say “Zing!” you will never be the same.

Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, Jan/Feb 10

2008 Bonarda Colonia Las Liebres Mendoza

($12) Medium ruby. Pure aromas of black cherry, licorice and mint. Juicy and bright, with pungent, well-integrated acidity framing the fairly intense black fruit flavors.

Finishes with light tannins and good length. In texture and weight-and lack of oak influence-this reminded me of a cross between dolcetto and barbera. And not a bit rustic for bonarda. 88 points

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: 92 Pts – 03 Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda

2003 Mendoza Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda
Altos Las Hormigas $7.50 – 92

If you’re already familiar with Argentine Bonarda, this wine will make you feel as though you’ve landed on another planet.

It comes from 30-year-old vines planted in two areas within Mendoza: one in the cool heights of Uco Valley, and the other towards the hot plains of the east, in a massive red with a roasted black fruit aroma that almost takes you to the Rhône, its firm, tense tannins and vibrant acidity providing a solid structure that suggests a brilliant future.

A hedonistic pleasure, and a true steal for the price.

Robert Parker: Bonarda Colonia Las Liebres 2004

Altos Las Hormigas – 86
Bonarda Colonia Las Liebres – 2004 – $8

Highly expressive aromas of black raspberries, plums, and violets are found in the nose of the 2004 Bonarda Colonia Las Liebres. Well-concentrated, this medium-bodied wine is expressive, displaying loads of plummy, floral flavors. Its finish reveals some firm tannin. Drink it over the next 3 years.
