My wine of the month wine is a bit special, Tio Pepe Fino en Rama Gonzales Byass is a limited edition of 10,752 bottles of wine bottled directly from the barrels without any filtration or fining when “flor cover” was at its thickest in the spring of 2013. My bottles were bottled on April 8, 2013 and should be consumed within three months in order to maintain maximum freshness.

A pale yellow wine with a great intense, slightly perfumed aroma reminiscent of white lilacs, citrus, freshly baked bread and yeast. The palate is dry and full-bodied, with a slightly perfumed grapey aroma, with hints of yeast and a delicious bitterness in the end, a long spicy finish with balanced astringency. Totally worth + + + + +.

A bargain!

The wine is suitable as an aperitif, to Pata Negra, olives, Manchego cheese and all kinds of tapas, such as shrimp with a lot of garlic or grilled octopus. (A steal at around 16 euro.)

  1. Excellent Spanish company. I recommend tasting Vilarnau Cavas (sparkling wines from Penedes, DO Cava), from the same company…
