3.3.17 Mundus Vini Sherry Results; New Tio Pepe Experience

Results are in for the Mundus Vini Wine Competition Spring 2017 which is set in Germany. Organised by Meininger, the publisher and event organiser in Neustadt/Weinstraße, over 6,000 wines were subjected to rigorous examination by professionals. Here are the Sherry results:

Gold Best of Show Sherry
Sandeman Royal Ambrosante PX VOS

Sandeman Caracter  Medium Dry
Sandeman Armada Cream
González Byass Cristina Medium
González Byass Néctar PX
González Byass Amontillado del Duque VORS
González Byass Palo Cortado Apóstoles VORS
González Byass Matúsalem Oloroso VORS
Barbadillo Gibalbín VT Cádiz

González Byass and cooperage Tonelería Vasima have got together for a new Tio Pepe experience. This great idea is designed to show the importance of the cooper in Jerez with a visit to the cooperage where one can see all the fascinating traditional processes of barrel production from drying the staves through to the finished product. This is followed by a visit to the bodegas for a tasting of wines and spirits at various stages of maturity to see how the oak interacts with them and their development over time.
