Tio Pepe, Fino En Rama (2022 bottling), Jerez
(at London, 10 Jul 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2023
Sherry aficionados eagerly await the annual spring release of en rama Sherries, as the category showcases Sherry in its raw, freshly released state, unfined and with minimal filtration, and usually produced in small quantities. Gonzales Byass's regular Tio Pepe fino bottling is a blend of many butts to create a consistent house style, whereas the en rama blends selected butts, chosen to reflect vineyard character. Offering a great aromatic intensity, this is fresh, saline, tangy and crisp, with a deeply yeasty character, and it goes on forever in the mouth. Enjoy it with jamon Iberico – a simple and heavenly pairing! The half-bottle is a great entry point, but you can also buy by 75cl bottle.
