  • Producer: Bodegas Perica

Style:

Ripe blackberry fruit, warm clean palate. Well balanced and ripe tannins.

Food Match: Especially good with cheese and meat in rich sauce.

Lovely garnet colour, restrained oak allowing scents of sweet spice and undergrowth.

A funkadelic label but the wine is true Rioja. 100% Tempranillo with loads of hit and not overblown oak. If you like your oak, then go Vina Olagosa Perica Reserva, if you like more of the fruit but a big big number go 6 cepas 6. Lovely garnet colour, restrained oak allowing scents of sweet spice and undergrowth. Ripe blackberry fruit, warm clean palate. Well balanced and ripe tannins.

Why this is a cut above is that they have not tried to over-crop, to dilute the fruit in the pursuit of profit and then cover with semi oak ageing. This is a very lush wine for not a great deal of money. Made by a family winery who are trying their best to get with it but not doing so at the expense of flavour.

 

From the Producer’s website:

A winery with its own character

In our land nothing describes better than a nickname.  In someone’s nickname is where you find the strength, character and sense of identity of each family member.  That’s why our warehouse could not be called other than “Perica”: the nickname that David Garcia has worn with pride for years.  It defines a way to view life based on the effort, attention to detail and respect and love of the wine heritage of this land. These are the virtues that have driven our winery during the last half century to go from being a hold of a local to an international company.

The quality of our soil and the perfect acclimatization of different grape varieties are the reasons why the Rioja Alta is regarded as an indisputable international level for all great wines lovers.  Our vineyards, all located in this part of the province, provide a unique raw material with which to create our award winning wines.
