Tio Pepe Fino Sherry is a star bright, pale golden color. It’s elegant and distinctive, with fresh bread and almond aromas. The palate is full bodied, crisp and very dry, with a complex, long finish.
Tio Pepe comes from the heart of Jerez and is much sought after for its distinctive, delicate nose and dry, crisp, fresh flavors. It has a classic Sherry nutty character and is delicious as an aperitif, an after dinner drink, or, as is traditional in Spain, with salty foods such as olives or smoked salmon.
Perfect with canapes and tapas, Asian food, seafood and all fish based dishes. Try it with caviar, oysters, anchovies or tuna carpaccio.
88 Points – Wine Spectator:
Bracing and ultradry, here’s a fino that begs for tapas. Nut and apple flavors are accented by iodine, and the finish leaves a mouthwatering impression. Drink now.
88 Points – Wine Enthusiast:
Round and nutty, with mild floral and honey hints up front. The formula for Tio Pepe calls for a salty, crisp flavor profile with just enough complexity to thrust it into the upper echelon of finos. Slight mushroom and iodine notes appear on the finish.
