Tio Pepe is the world’s leading ‘Fino’ a very pale and dry style of wine made in the south-west of Spain. Drink it just as you would a dry white wine on its own, or with a meal. Always in a wine glass.
Due to the fact that the flor portects Tio Pepe from the oxygen, it has been able to maintain a pale golden yellow colour. On the nose, sharp yet elegant aromas of the yeast from the flor balanced with almond notes typical of the Palomino variety. On the palate, completely dry with reminders of almonds, green olives, green apple, and slightly bitter. Surprisingly fresh after 4 years spent in oak with a long and complex finish.
Tio Pepe should be served very chilled, 4-7C, in a small white wine glass in order to appreciate the full bouquet of aromas.
Perfect as an aperitif with toasted almonds, toasted bread with crushed tomato, sardines, mackerel and young cheese.
