Look for rich dark cherry, blackberry, plum and vanilla flavours on the palate. Excellent on its own or pair with grilled pork chops.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Great price and lots of flavour. Aromas of cherry, blackberries, wet stone, and mint. Full bodied, with some smooth tannins. Fruit forward on the palate with a hint of vanilla on the finish. Enjoy with marinated pork or chicken dishes.
Produced by José Maria da Fonseca, Periquita Reserva 2016 is a dry and robust red wine made from Castelão, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca red wine grapes from the Setubal wine region in Portugal. Dry and full-bodied with rich blackberry, cassis, dark plum and vanilla flavours on the palate. Good now, better in 2020. - Community Wine Reviews
