Christmas Tio Pepe Fino Sherry
The most famous Fino Sherry in the world has gotten all dressed up for Christmas.
All decked out in a yuletide sleeve that’s full of festive cheer, Tio Pepe Fino makes a perfect present. Lovingly crafted from 100% Palomino Fino grapes and matured in a solera system* for a minimum of four or five years, it’s – what’s that line from Good King Wenceslas? – oh yes, “deep and crisp and even”. Sip this fresh Fino – with its almond, green apple, pizza dough yeast and green olive notes – straight from the fridge as an aperitif or alongside tapas, fish, olives or salty cheeses. And when you’re done, the bottle comes with a tear strip down the back to separate the sleeve for recycling.
When the founder of Gonazalez Byass, Manuel María González Ángel (even his name is topped like a Christmas tree), entered the wine industry, he sought advice from his uncle, José María Ángel y Vargas, or as he affectionately called him “mi tío Pepe”. In Uncle Pepe’s honour, a legend was born.
*A solera system is a series of barrels with the oldest on the bottom and the youngest on the top. Sherry is bottled from the bottom row, that row is then topped up from the next oldest on the level up and so on up the system, the gap at the top is then filled with young wine. This never-ending process of fractional blending ensures consistency and provides the required micro-nutrients present in young wine to support the yeast (known as ‘flor’) that grows on Fino Sherry as it ages.
