There’s more to Mendoza than Malbec. Bonarda from Mendoza has been turning heads for some time now. Deeply pigmented like Malbec, Bonarda offers softer tannins, brighter acidity, and approachable fruity flavors. In the hands of a winemaker like Alejandro Vigil, Bonarda is very elegant. The chief winemaker at benchmark winery Bodega Catena Zapata, Alejandro understands Mendoza better than anyone. ‘La Esperanza’ is a single vineyard Bonarda made from grapes harvested from an old vineyard in San Martín.Vibrant purplish red in the glass, on the nose there are complex aromas of dark raspberries, red plums, violets, and dark chocolate. On the medium bodied palate wickedly moreish blackfruit flavors are complemented by velvety tannins.
