I like my whites dry and crisp. This one is pale in color with a mild slightly minerally, citrus nose. On the mid palate the wine displays lovely crisp dry notes to match the nose with minerality and some citrus notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice mild acidity and slight grapefruit notes. This is a lovely dry, food friendly wine. At 2g/l it’s about as dry as it gets, but still not overwhelming. I enjoyed it and would give it an 88 or so. Anywhere you would pair a sauv blanc this would also go well.

Flor de Vetus Verdejo 2015 — VINTAGES#: 320259
STYLE – Light & Crisp
For those who already like sauvignon blanc but want to explore beyond its limits, this verdejo from Rueda is very much worth a look. It has a lifted, fragrant and unusual nose of lemongrass, mustard flower, vague pineapple and fresh herbs. It’s mid-weight, quite delicate with medium acidity and some wamth. Yet intensely flavoured and focused, with excellent length. A real bargain that should tempt the reticent. Score – 89. (David Lawrason, winealign.com, Sept. 15, 2016)
