Our offer: £13.95 per bottle OR for a limited period only £12.00 per bottle when you buy 6 bottles.

‘En rama’ is the local jargon used by winery workers to refer to wine in its unrefined and most delicate state, prior to the normal stabilization, clarification and filtering processes that fino sherry, like many white wines, have to go through prior to bottling.

Tio Pepe is produced from Palomino Fino grown in the chalky “albariza” soil of Jerez. The Solera system, in which the wines from different years are blended, contributes to its remarkably consistent quality. It is aged under a covering of fresh, naturally occurring yeast, ‘flor’, for a minimum of five years.

The 2013 release of Tio Pepe Fino En Rama is a selection from the best barrels from two of the ancient Tio Pepe soleras: Constancia and Rebollo. Both these soleras rest in the historic Gonzalez Byass bodegas where Tio Pepe carries out its biological ageing. Tio Pepe Rebollo is the founding solera, formed of 87 barrels while the larger solera of Tio Pepe Constancia is made up of 356 barrels. Both soleras bring unique elements to this release of Tio Pepe Fino En Rama.
