Marton Andina: Serrera Bonarda 2007 – Hints of Caramel

November 26th, 2008  |  Published in Featured Wines, Serrera

In Argentina’s long winemaking history, up until only recently the Bonarda grape was the most widely-planted red grape for wine production in Argentina (it has since been surpassed by the mighty Malbec).

While it’s not yet very common in Ontario, we anticipate that in the near future it will be.

Serrera Bonarda 2007 is one that has caught our attention. It’s an excellent Bonarda with lovely, playful notes of caramel on both the nose and palate.

Tasting notes:
Deep, intense purple color, bright, with violet hints. An aromatic display of floral and minted notes, with hints of caramel. Balanced and harmonious in the mouth, it has good structure and expresses finesse and finishes long.

Pulmary Estates: CUQ Bonarda Rosado 2006

April 5th, 2008  |  Published in Featured Wines, Pulmary

CUQ bonarda rosado rose spectrum wines

Bonarda is the second most-grown red grape in Argentina after Malbec, but not often is it used to create an organic, dry rosado with medium body with mild, pleasant tannins.

The CUQ Bonarda Rosado is truly unique wine experience, and to the best of our knowledge, this is the only Bonarda Rosado currently available in Ontario.

Lovely berry fruit flavours are harmoniously balanced by lively acidity. Great for summer sipping or with seafood.

Available exclusive in Ontario to the Woodside Wine Appreciation Club [BUY].
