The El Circo (“Circus”) range is a collection of varietal wines created to express the magic of the big top marquee, with each wine representing a different circus performer. The wines are made by co-operative Grandes Vinos based in a modern purpose-built facility in the DO Cariñena - the only region in the world to give its name to a grape variety. After having worked both in his native Chile and across Spain, winemaker Marcelo Morales arrived for the 2000 vintage and impressed by both the quality of the fruit and the high standard of the facilities at his disposal, has stayed.
This wine is intense red in colour with violet hues. The nose is light with delicate aromas of raspberries, bramble, cherry jam and cracked red pepper. On the palate, it has flavours of crushed cranberries and black olives. It has a crisp and refreshing acidity with a long and lingering finish.
