González Byass presents Uncle Pepe Fino in Rama 2019, a jewel of very limited elaboration that arrives, like every year, in the spring. In this season life, light and joy take the foundational nucleus of the Bodega de La Constancia. It is the moment in which Antonio Flores, oenologist of the house of Tío Pepe, selects those boots that stand out for their unique organoleptic characteristics. The moment in which the new one draws from this Fino in Rama, which has not been subjected to the usual processes of clarification and filtration, sees the light.
After a dialogue between the winemaker and the winery, full of work, origin, wisdom and passion, 67 boots have been chosen for the tenth edition of this Fino en Rama. Custodiadas by the stillness of the Bodega de La Constancia, are boots that reflect the Terroirde Macharnudo and Carrascal, in an intense and elegant way, and that have retained a forceful and thick veil of flower giving it all the character and style of Tío Pepe, cultural icon alive and legacy of a Wine Family founded in 1835.
Nose : Fresh as ever, with an emphasis on cellar notes (chalk, sandy floors) as well as bread dough, hay and a light heady top note
Palate : A tad less wild on the palate, more citrus freshness, coastal brine en lightly bitter herbs. A very harmonious edition this year.
Finish : The character of the Macharnudo area is reflected in the saltiness of the wine, which is also elegantly bitter on the finish
