90 Points - Wine Advocate
Established in 1995, Altos las Hormigas brings together the expertise of two renown Tuscan winemakers, A. Antonini and A. Pagli, with the Terroir approach of the French schooled Chilean Pedro Parra. Along with Malbec, Altos Las Hormigas has been crafting Bonarda for 10 year, Argentina’s second most planted variety. They display its joyful and delicate nature under the classic line Colonia Las Liebres.
Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda Clasica is created from grapes grown in the warmer regions of Rivadavia and East Mendoza. Dark purple in color, this wine is dense with a rustic, hearty juiciness, ripe acidity, and warm tannins. Perfect for red meat and barbeques.
"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. There are four lots of this wine, the first one of 28,434 bottles, but 46,000 liters remain unbottled." - Wine Advocate
