When you think Argentina and wine, the first thing that pops up is Malbec. Hold on to your hat because Argentina has another red up its sleeve. It’s Bonarda. The fruity nose and nuanced aromas will soon make a big splash.
- Bonarda wines are at first very fruity on the nose, with notes of black cherry compote, fresh blueberry, and plum. Then, they become more complex, giving off nuanced aromas of violets, 5-spice, allspice, and peonies.
- Bonarda displays ample color in the glass just like Malbec, but it delivers lower tannins and slightly higher, more juicy-tasting acidity.
- Bonarda is a very diverse food pairing wine. It will match well with chicken, beef, pork, and even a more steak-like fish.
