Product Description

This is the new vintage of Perelada 5 Finques Reserva, formerly known as Perelada 5 Finques.

This Spanish red wine is produced by Castillo de Perelada.

It is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Samsó (Carignan), Grenache & Monastrell.

The 6 varieties come from 5 estates - 5 Finques - composed of different kinds of soils. This fact, together with the Mediterranean influence and the cooling efect of the Tramuntana (a harsh northern wind) give the wine an interesting complexity. 

The grapes were separately harvested and vinified. Then the wine was aged for 18 months in fine-grain American and French oak barrels.

After that, it was aged for a further 12 months in the bottle.

Aerate Perelada 5 Finques Reserva 2016 from L'Empordà 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The wine Perelada 5 Finques Reserva has a bright cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.


This bold reserve red wine from L'Empordà obviously benefits from the richness of the blend. Complex aromas of juicy black and red fruit, combined with dash of exotic spices, some earthy nuances and aromas of menthol and Mediterranean underbrush. We also perceive some mineral remembrances over a deep, smokey and toasted core.


Mouth-filling and savoury, this red wine by Castillo Perelada has a solid structure that sustains flavours of dark fruit, dry earth and Mediterranean herbs. Intense mineral notes, crisp acidity and crunchy tannins. Long finish.

Our personal opinion

An excellent pairing with hearty dishes,  we suggest that, when in Catalonia, you drink Perelada 5 Finques Reserva 2016 with a "Mar i muntanya" (truly exquisite recipes that combine fish or shrimp with meat).

I think this is a very good wine for the price. Everything feels right. The fruit is delicious, wood adds a light touch and the finish is superb.

A very intense wine. Powerful, mineral and concentrated, with focus and good acidity. Excellent value.
