Tio Pepe Fino En Rama, Fourth Edition, 2013

Just out: the new Tio Pepe Fino en Rama. Taken straight from the cask, unfiltered, and offering lots of flavour. Wines like this are helping to make Sherry sexy again.

Think of this like supercharged Fino, with lovely complexity and depth of flavour. And while it’s a bit more expensive than most Finos, it’s still underpriced compared with other wines offering this sort of complexity, at around £14 a bottle.

This was bottled on 8 April, and the recommendation is to drink it within three months, because it is a natural, living product.

Tio Pepe Fino En Rama NV
Full yellow colour. Intensely aromatic with a tangy, herby citrussy nose, showing some almond, spice and apple notes. The palate is lively and fresh with lively citrussy, herby, appley, nutty characters. Full and rich yet complex and fresh with a lovely rounded mid-palate. 92/100
