According to winemaker Antonio Flores this strange year 2020 brought us one of the most vivid and ‘alive’ releases of Tio Pepe En Rama so far. Now in its eleventh edition, this is the ever so lightly filtered version of Tio Pepe, the benchmark Fino sherry from González Byass.
This dry sherry has a bright citrusy fruitiness, with an acidity that seems higher than in previous editions. Zesty lemons and green apples. Then the wild, funky character of the aldehydes and minerals come back, as well as the dried grasses and almonds. Plenty of briny notes. Very clean, slightly floral finish.
