Grape Variety:

Palomino

Vinification Details:

As soon as the Palomino grapes reach the winery they are gently pressed using neumatic presses without crushing the stems, seeds or skins. This must, used for Tio Pepe, from the first light pressing is called 'yema'. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks, classification and fortification to 15.5% the wine enters the Tio Pepe solera where it will age for more than 4 years in American oak barrels following the traditional Solera system. During this period the wine undergoes biological ageing under a layer of yeast known as the 'flor'. This 'flor' gives Tio Pepe its distinct colour, aroma and character.

History:

Gonzalez Byass was founded in Jerez in 1835 by Manuel Maria Gonzalez. At the young age of 23 he decided to dedicate himself to the production and commercialisation of sherry wines and spirits. In 1844 the first barrels of Tio Pepe were exported to London. Tio Pepe being named in homage to the uncle of the founder, Jose Angel. Then in 1855 the company's UK distributor Robert Blake Byass was made a partner in order to strengthen links with the UK, the number one market for Sherry wines. However nowadays the company is controlled by the Gonzalez family, now in its fifth generation. Gonzalez Byass has since been dedicated to the production and commercialisation of quality Sherry wines and Spirits and Tio Pepe went on to become the number one selling Fino in the world.

Regional Information:

Gonzalez Byass is situated in the city of Jerez, Andalusia, in the heart of the D.O. Jerez. Gonzalez Byass owns over 800 hectares of vineyards, all situated in Jerez Superior 20-70m above sea level. This area enjoys a warm and humid climate which helps in the maturation of the grapes. The Gonzalez Byass vineyards are found on the albariza soil which is the best soil in the area for the growth of vines as it has a very high chalk content and therefore a large capacity for maintaining moisture, very important given the long, hot and dry summers experienced in Jerez. Gonzalez Byass vineyards are 95% Palomino and 5% Pedro Ximenez, making it the only winery to have PX planted in Jerez. All Palomino grapes used for Tio Pepe are hand picked to ensure that they arrive at the pressing plant in optimum condition.
