Tío Pepe is made from Palomino Fino grapes with an estimated ageing period of five years.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 19/02/2017

Appearance

Clear, pale straw.

Aroma

Yeasty, minerally with faint olive brine.

Taste

Bone dry, mineral (hard water) with slight oiliness, grapey acidity and hints of anchovy stuffed olives, lightly salted crisps and green apples.

Aftertaste

Very long, lingering salty olives and grapy acidity.

Overall

Bone dry, wonderfully complex and superbly structured. Be sure to drink whilst still fresh (ideally within days of opening), well-chilled and with almonds or other suitable nibbles.
