Tio Pepe Fino En Rama Reviews
Tasting Notes by Billy
Nose: Yeasty and mineral-led – bread and slate, with a hint of lemon. Sweet sultanas hide in the background.
Palate: Very dry, with earth, straw and a musty farmyard note. Sweetness develops, although only a tiny bit: pear and sharp apple.
Finish: Lemon peel, water biscuits and a touch of straw.
Comment: It's very dry, to the point of being austere, but there is some fruitiness hiding in there. It needs food to really come alive, and a piece of good Iberico ham helps it sing.
Tasting Notes by Stuart
Nose: Incredibly fresh and mineral on the nose, with sea spray, green olive and fresh apple notes.
Palate: Lean and mineral, with bags of brine and sea spray, this is clean and refreshing, with fresh acidity, and a savoury umami-like character running through it, along with apple, olive and lip-smacking saltiness.
Finish: Clean, with the tangy saltiness lingering.
Comment: Much more bracing than most finos and manzanillas, this really needs food to let the flavours sing. Would be ideal with a plate of Gordal olives and jamón.
