Cariñena El Circo 2015
El Circo means ‘the circus’, and each of the varieties in this range is represented by a different circus performer. The wines are made by the co-operative located in DO Cariñena, the same name as the grape variety, which is known as Carignan in France. A new, modern winery was built in 2002. Winemaker Marcelo Morales Calderon is Chilean, having previously worked for Carmen and Veramonte among others. He came for the vintage 13 years ago and stayed, as he was excited both by the quality of the fruit and the high standard of the facilities he had – and still has – at his disposal.
Purple in colour. The nose is light with delicate aromas of raspberries, bramble, cherry jam and cracked red pepper. It has crisp and refreshing acidity. In the mouth has flavours of crushed cranberries and raspberries with herbal sensations such as fennel seed.
