Tio Pepe En Rama
This unclarified and unfiltered super fresh Fino is loved by many for its unique, fresh from the cask experience. En Rama is alive with flavour and has more nutty and yeasty aromas than the usual Tio Pepe and on the palate it is fresh and citrusy, with a complex, saline finish. A truly gastronomic wine it pairs perfectly with olives, almonds, oily fish and tapas.
Notes from master blender Antonio Flores for the 2016 vintage: “The Tio Pepe En Rama 2016 is sublime; pungent, fresh and very much in the style of traditional Tio Pepe. Sourced from our founding cellars Rebollo and Constancia where year after year we find the most exceptional wines.
The mild climate over the past vintage, with an average amount of rainfall and a mild summer has given us a healthy and balanced vintage. A hot July followed by a cool August, thanks to the constant poniente winds, and an almost spring-like winter created great conditions for the flor to flourish. Additionally, the conditions in the González Byass cellars, ideal average temperatures and the absence of warm Levante winds during maturation were key in allowing the flor to maintain its magic cloak over the surface of the wine; strong and solid throughout the year.”
