Perelada 5 Fincas Reserva is a complex wine expressing the features of the different micro-climates, soils and grape varieties found in Empordà, a small wine appellation in north-east Catalonia, which stretches as far as the border with France. The Castillo de Perelada winery owns five estates here with a variety of soil types which ensure this Reserva is rich in nuances.
What does this wine taste like?
It reaches wine-lovers with an intense cherry red colour and splendid aromas of red fruit and spices, backed up by soothing herbal notes over a toasted background. Fresh, structured and balanced in the mouth, it also has a well-integrated and measured tannicity. A wine displaying an amazing personality and a wonderfully long after-taste.

One of my favourite Emporda wines.
I have been drinking Peralada 5 Fincas for many vintages and none of them have ever disappointed. Full bodied with lots of fruit and long on the pallet. Very good value from a very good producer. Will buy again.
Sumptous wine that lingers long afterwards
This is a fantastic wine to accompany food or to drink on it's own. Beautifully complex and leaves a lingering taste, fantastic value

This has to be the best value wine for a year or more. Unique in roundness on the palate, medium bodied and exceptional taste.
