Behind the Cork™ - Wine of the Week


Tio Pepe Fino ($20)

This Tio Pepe Fino Sherry is from the Jerez region of Spain. Jerez is the home of sherry and all true Sherry comes from the vineyards around Jerez.

Made from the Palomino grape, this Sherry uses only the free run and first press must. Following fermentation, the 11-12% ABV wine is fortified to 15.5%  before entering the Tio Pepe solera. There it spends a minimum of four years in oak.

This Sherry has wonderfully light flavors and low acidity making it a perfect aperitif. It does have some hints of toasted almond. Serve it well chilled and enjoy!
