Tio Pepe Palomino Fino Sherry
|Spain, Jerez / Sherry / Manzanilla, Fino
Shows a rounded edge for a fino, with blanched almond and white peach notes, laced with a fleur de sel accent. Bitter almond notes give the finish good tension. Drink now.
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.
