91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Colonia Las Liebres is now an organic (certified) range, of which the classical 2019 Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda Clásica comes from a warm year. Almost six hectares were parral planted in 2007 and were the first to be certified organic. The wine keeps the freshness and has unusual floral and elegant aromas. It's 10% carbonic maceration in stainless steel, and the aging was in concrete. It's always around 13% alcohol. Over the years, this range has become less extractive and ripe. Still unbottled, it becomes more elegant with time in the glass."
Vinous Reverie Notes
100% Bonarda Argentina organic grapes come from pergola vineyards located in Luján de Cuyo (Mendoza), at 800 m. The area has a semi-desert climate with hot days and cool nights. We choose deep, fresh soils with low fertility to control vigor, delay ripening, and avoid hydrological stress. These are sandy loams where the clay component provides mineral nutrients and water retention, while the sand component prevents the silt and clay part from compacting excessively, and guarantees water drainage. Tasting Notes: The efforts that the winery has been making since 2012 to grow grapes organically have finally paid off in this 2017 vintage. This Bonarda is an organic certified wine, presenting notes of crispy red fruits and white pepper, with soft tannins in the palate and intense flavors. It has a long and fresh finish, with lots of character. Its deep and vibrant mouthfeel makes it a true pleasure wine. Food Pairing: Ideal to pair with pasta Pomodoro dishes, pizza and light meats.
