¡Mish! I'd always been surprised not to have seen more (well, any) garnacha in Chile, along with the other Spanish varietals. Is that the only one you've come across? If there's more, would you care to mention them?

They're moderately popular here in Oz, but perhaps require warmer climate than can be found in Chile?

It requires clonal material grown from 30 gm to fruiting vines which takes 8-9 years, so new to Chile varieties are a long, slow and expensive process........
