Huge in Portugal A rich, smooth blend of Portuguese varieties, a bit of mocha flavour from the oak, perfect!
The history of Periquita is interwoven with the story of José Maria da Fonseca itself, beginning in the
1820s when the founding father of the company, José Maria da Fonseca arrived in Lisbon and bought
several local properties. One such purchase, most probably in 1846, was Cova da Periquita. It was on
that property that José Maria da Fonseca planted red grapes of the Castelão variety. Periquita is now
the oldest brand of Portuguese table wines
Fermentation lasts for about 6 days at 28ºC with full skin contact. Aged for 6 months in French and American new oak
You really get the ripe blackberry and raspberry flavours so characteristic of the Castelão grape variety.
Fresh, round and soft. Excellent choice with game
