100% Bonarda Argentina grapes come from high-trellised vineyards located in a unique microclimate in the area of Medrano and Carrizal de Abajo, Mendoza. This area sits slightly higher than the neighboring vineyards to the north, which contributes to cooler nights, resulting in acid development and retention. The low fertility soils paired with parral trellising help control the natural vigor of the Bonarda vine, and deep soils with good drainage facilitate root development.
Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda is an opaque ruby wine displaying aromas of freshly picked black cherries, raspberry,¬†plum, rose and yellow flowers, with hints of mint, dried herbs and underbrush.¬†The palate has a rich round mouthfeel and is accompanied by red and black¬†fruit, dark chocolate and a bit of toast. Not powerful, but well-ripened, this¬†wine provides a well-balanced and delicate finish.¬†Enjoyed best ¬†at cellar temperature ¬†from 60-64 ¬∞F.
