Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda 2009

Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda 2009
Argentina, $12.99 +369066

We’ve been harping about Bonarda for a few years, but it seems that for North American palates Malbec still remains supreme as Argentina’s signature grape. Don’t get us wrong-we couldn’t live without the ever versatile, ever affordable Malbec, but once in a while-like when we’re making Rob Belcham’s awesome pink salmon recipe-we need a little finesse and a tad more lightness. That’s when Bonarda comes in handy. Made from 30-year-old vines, it sees no oak to keep its vibrant strawberry and raspberry flavours singing. They’ve spiffied up their label since we last wrote about them but thankfully the price is still a major deal.
