Tio Pepe (Gonzalez Byass) Fino Sherry

SKU #250020 Jancis Robinson

 Fresh, riper fruit than the Barbadillo Manzanilla -- such a good, reliable brand! Great concentration and purity. (RH)  (4/ 2013)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Talking about which, the NV Tio Pepe Fino is an icon of Sherry wine. Produced from Palomino grapes aged in the Tio Pepe solera for an average of four years under flor. It has a light nose of dried flowers, almonds and olives, in a subtle way and a dry palate dominated by the chalky notes. Light and easy to drink, it is a good introduction to Fino Sherry.

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.  (6/ 2005)

K&L Notes

This is a dry, pleasantly salty Fino Sherry and very tasty with tapas, particularly those with a seafood theme. Freshly grilled sardines, anyone?
