Overview

First made in 2015, Cuesta Chica is 100% Garnacha from a single vineyard of the same name and planted at an elevation close to 2200 meters above sea level. Fermented in stone lagars and aged in concrete eggs, it is a rare, pure and expressive example of mountain Garnacha that more closely resembles the wines of the Gredos than typical of Garnacha in Chile.
