Located on the south of Monte Yerga on the sunny side of the slopes, the Cuesta de la Reina Estate commences at an altitude of 450 meters and ascends to 800 meters. The soils, clayey-calcareous, are very poor and with abundance of boulders. The estate of 120 Hectare has belonged to the family for four generations and the family itself has always cultivated the vineyard. The average age of the vines is over 40 years. Following a meticulous monitoring of the vineyard, the grapes are harvested at optimum maturity. The harvest is done manually by selecting healthy and ripe grapes and rejecting the bad and deteriorated. The Harvest was done in mid-October for both the Tempranillo and the Garnacha grapes. The grapes are collected in fruit boxes to avoid any kind of crushing.
The harvested grapes are transported to the winery, and emptied directly into the tanks where the grape bunches remain in maceration for 12 days in order to go to the press. By gently pressing the skins and stems are separated of the must. The must continues to ferment slowly at low temperature.
