TIO PEPE 2021 RELEASE
En Rama Gonzalez Byass
|Other||Low-sulphite, Vegan, Vegetarian|
Tio Pepe 'En Rama' is Fino in its purest form - unfiltered, un-clarified and drawn from the middle of the cask just a few weeks ago. Then shipped as quickly as possible to our cellars in the UK, for drinking as fresh as you can. You know summer is nearly here when En Rama touches down!
The colour this year seems darker and this impression follows to the palate where there is such great intensity of flavour. Fresh bread and briny olive notes dominate the attack and then a fresher deep citrus edge builds lifting and driving this complex beauty onwards. Powerfully aromatic with a distinctive 'flor' (yeasty) character, intriguing savoury flavours are quite heady, there is a salty line too that runs throughout to the clean lemony finish. Drink this chilled from a wine glass with salted almonds, shellfish, grilled fish or for a fantastic treat a plate of 'pata negra' ham. L&S (May 2021)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Aficionados often get excited by “en rama”, or “raw” sherries, which are bottled unfiltered straight from the cask. These tend to display greater intensity and complexity than filtered fino, and here you’ll find savoury, briny olive notes with a lovely dry finish.Will Lyons, The Sunday Times (Oct 2021)
In 1835, a young man called Manuel María González Angel arrived in Jerez, intent on making a name for himself in the thriving and lucrative sherry business. Encouraged by the consistent growth in exports, that same year he purchased a small winery and began to produce and export his own wines. This was the start of Bodegas Tío Pepe which, due to the firm’s increasing success, became the González Byass company soon afterwards. Today, Bodegas Tío Pepe is known around the world as one of the leading producers of sherry and Brandy de Jerez.
