El Circo 600x600

El Circo Macabeo

Macabeo is a white grape that is cultivated either side of the Pyrenees (though Spain produces fifteen times as much as France). Commendably versatile, it is used for still, sparkling (Cava), dry and sweet wines. Depending on what is done with it, Macabeo can be refreshing and straightforward (as here) or – with later harvested, oaked examples – weighty and nutty.   El Circo Macabeo is produced in Cariñena .
