Periquita Reserva 2011 - 88 points, Wine Enthusiast/ The iconic Periquita brand has expanded into a range of wines, from which this is an ageworthy example. It has smoky wood flavors, a rich texture and warm, rounded fruitiness. The density, tannins and final acidity all promise aging, so drink from 2015.
Periquita Reserva 2010 - 87 points, Wine Enthusiast/ A rich, darkly tannic wine, extended wood aging brings out a tarry, dense character. On the palate, blackberry fruits dominate, along with a well-defined line of acidity and a dry core. There’s potential to age, so drink from 2016.
Periquita Reserva 2007 - 89 points, i-winereview.com/ A blend of Castelão (50%), Touriga Nacional (30%) and Touriga Franca (20%), the 2007 Periquita Reserva provides more depth and richness in the mouth than the regular Periquita. It is smooth and silky on the palate with soft tannins and a long finish. Good Value.
Periquita Reserva 2005 - Gold Medal, Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition/ Nearly 800 wines were evaluated by 18 winemakers, who were split into six three-person panels. The judges awarded only 84 Golds.
Periquita is renowned for being Portugal’s first ever bottled red. That’s where its originality comes from. For more than 160 years, this landmark wine from the southwestern coast of Portugal has been a welcome guest at the tables of discerning wine drinkers and an international ambassador for fine Portuguese wines. Created by Jose Maria da Fonseca in 1850, Periquita is made primarily from the Castelão grape, an indigenous variety that thrives in southern Portugal and, originally ushered into the public eye by J.M. da Fonseca, has become nearly synonymous with the highly regarded wines of this historic producer. Periquita is now the oldest brand of Portuguese table wines, having acquired widespread popularity over the years in Portugal and considerable brand awareness in export markets such as Sweden, Brazil, the UK, the USA, Canada, Denmark and Norway. Today, it represents the NEW Portugal. Production Area Terras do Sado, Portugal. Vineyards here are composed principally of sand (95%) with some presence of clay (5%). Grape Varieties Castelão (38%), Touriga Nacional (34%), Touriga Francesa (28%) Vinification Fermentation lasts for about 7 days at 80°F, maintaining full skin contact. AGING The wine is aged eight months in new and used French oak barrels. Color Deep ruby Bouquet Blueberries, cassis, mineral, figs, blackpepper Taste Full-bodied and silky, with ripe dark fruit flavors, spicy nuances and supple tannins Alcohol 13.1%
Reserva 2007 - 87 Points, Wine Advocate/ ... The 2007 PERIQUITA RESERVA is a blend of 45% Castelao, with 30% Touriga Nacional and 25% Touriga Franca. This adds the depth and structure missing from the regular Periquita reviewed this issue, and is easily worth the few extra bucks. It is the top Periquita now...Silky and graceful, this has an ethereal air to it at times, while still managing to project some grip on the finish and ripe tannins. There is a touch of oak, but it rounds into form relatively quickly. This is very pleasing.
Periquita Reserva - A Best Value, Parker's Wine Bargains/ A Portuguese classic, this is bright, elegant, and charming, with succulent, juicy fruit that has a certain blueberry overlay.
