Uncle Joe’s 5 year old nephew is still going strong


enramalabelGonzalez Byass’s (if not the world’s) most famous Fino Sherry is Tio Pepe which, if you didn’t know, is Spanish for ‘Uncle Joe’. Last week I attended the Big Fortified Tasting in London where I tasted this year’s bottling of Tio Pepe En Rama – the unclarified and unfiltered expression of Fino Sherry which this year celebrates its fifth bottling. They call it “puro zumo de flor” (pure flor juice).

My necessarily brief tweeted tasting note said:

This year’s @TioPepeFino En Rama. Biscuit & Bramley apple. Crisp, refreshing, long & delicious #WatchThisSpace #NextWeek

It has a really broad mouthfeel and a long finish – an ‘en rama panorama’, if you like.

The official launch date is Wednesday 30th April, and it will be on sale with us very soon after at £14.50 per bottle.

UPDATE: 30/4/14 – It’s available right here, right now, while stocks last.

    A few mouthfuls are just the thing while beginning to cook the evening meal!
