Tio Pepe En Rama Fino, Gonzalez Byass - 2021 release

VS074

After the flor has burst back into life after a dormant winter it invigorates the barrels and gives this already classy wine a bit of extra zip. It is quite delicious.

'Pale gold in colour, this wine has a slight cloudiness from the presence of flor. On the nose it is powerful and fragrant, displaying notes of chalk, talcum powder, iodine and salt in perfect harmony with hints of nuts, chamomile, lemon and fresh yeast. Complex on the palate, it is fresh, dry, brimming with flavour, salty and slightly bitter.

With this 12th release, La Constancia is again showing itself at its best, reflecting the strength of the Macharnudo and Carrascal pagos and the subtlety of biological ageing. The intensity and depth of flavour of Tio Pepe en Rama 2021 make it a wine that is best drunk with food and is ideal to pair with fish, seafood, vegetables, cured meats, spicy food and rice dishes. Serve well chilled in a white wine glass.' Gonzalez Byass

Press Reviews

En rama sherry is all about drinking pale, dry sherry as they do on its home turf in Jerez: newly bottled and barely filtered so that you get engaging freshness together with fuller flavour.

In fact, because the flor was particularly healthy in the bodega over the winter, the quintessential, yeasty flor flavours in this year's bottling, the 12th edition, are even more intense – think sourdough toast, salty green olives, grilled almonds, sea spray and green apple. There's also a little more colour than in the regular year-round Tio Pepe. This year's Fino En Rama was bottled, in necessarily limited quantities as always, in the second week of April from 82 specially chosen barrels in the Tio Pepe solera.

Serve it chilled in a wine glass, preferably with an array of olives, salted or Marcona almonds, prawns, squid, jamón and other cured and smoked meats, croquetas, tortilla, Manchego... and dream of being in Jerez (I wish). 15%.
