Review

Flor de Vetus is a Toro with a powerful structure, a wine that always delivers the fruit up front, letting a wide array of notes come through from oak ageing (chocolate, toffee), always as subtle nuances and resulting from careful handling of the wood, and also floral hints with their gentle perfume, plus a touch of minerality. It is a modern style wine, lovely and pleasant, and one that can be enjoyed immediately.

Along the lines of both this bodega’s other wines and those of the rest of the group, it offers an excellent extraction and depth of fruit, intense and full-bodied, with good structure and balance, of medium complexity, oily (which is immediately obvious due to its abundant tears), sweet, juicy and with tannins evident but not dominant. This is a wine to enjoy while it is still young.

Está como un Toro

Para ser el pequeño de Vetus, posee una fuerza y una profundidad de sabor que en pocos vinos de este precio se puede apreciar. Un Toro en toda regla.

Toro en estado puro

Ese color cereza precioso y ese fondo de regaliz que me encanta. Un vino que va bien con casi todo

Young and fresh

This tastes more roble than crianza as it is quite light. It is an easy drinking wine and went well with lamb.
