Pale lime in colour, the 2012 Flor de Vetus displays decent notes of leafy green apples, lemon, and herbs. Palate:...

Citrus fruit, green apple, mango, tropical fruit and green grass with a hint of spice make up the fairly complex nose on this wine. This had a nice finish with green apple on the palate. Great for summer.

Medium straw in colour with an intense nose.

A good alternative to Sancerre at half the price or Oz Sauvignon Blanc at the same price.

Positives: A great summer wine that features a lot of citric and stone fruit with an added minerality at the end. Medium body with refreshing acidity and a fairly long length.

Drink now on its own or pair it with sushi.

Aromatic and refreshing with stone fruit, wet stone, grapefruit and touch of mint/menthol on the nose and flavours of ripe peach, pink grapefruit, and mineral with a zippy lemon finish. A fun, easy drinking summer wine.
