2019 J.M. Da Fonseca Periquita White


For more than 150 years, Periquita has been the hallmark of J.M. da Fonseca wines. As one of the oldest Portuguese table wine brands, you won’t be disappointed with this modern, fresh blend of Verdelho and other aromatic white grapes. With hints of apricot, peach, melon and banana, this fruity wine is excellent as an aperitif and pairs well with seafood dishes.

ABV % = 12.5



Sètubal is a peninsula in Southern Portugal famous for making some of the great wines in all of the country. The area is dominated by dry red wines, as well as sweet wines. The most famous wine in the region is Periquita. This is a Rhône-like red wine that has earth, elegance, and fruit. It is made with the indigenous Castelão grape, which is known locally as Periquita. The rare sandy soil makes for wines with plush fruit to balance out the earth which the grape has naturally. There are also famous sweet wines made here from Muscat, called Moscatel de Sètubal. These are typically aged in older barriques and take on a beautiful carmelized citrus note. This entire region is ancient, yet it is still growing with all the interest in the wines from here. These wines are truly an amazing value.
