Another figure that played an important role in the success of González Byass was Manuel’s uncle - José Angel, then an acknowledged expert in Sherry. He was known locally as ‘Tío Pepe’, meaning ‘Uncle Joe’ in Spanish and so the name of world’s best-selling Fino sherry produced and exported since 1844, is a fitting recognition of his advice.
Serve ice cold in a small wine glass to accompany all kinds of food, particularly nuts, olives, cured ham and sushi. Or serve as they do on hot days in Jerez, over ice or even 'Rebujito'. Pronounced 'Ray-Bow-He-Toe', this is a generous splash of Tio Pepe served in a tall ice-filled glass topped with 7-Up.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 19/02/2017
Clear, pale straw.
Yeasty, minerally with faint olive brine.
Bone dry, mineral (hard water) with slight oiliness, grapey acidity and hints of anchovy stuffed olives, lightly salted crisps and green apples.
Very long, lingering salty olives and grapy acidity.
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.
