The Bottom Line
We rated the Flores de Verao (2020) from Costco’s Hello Summer Wine Sampler (2021) 3.0 Stars (out of 5)!
This white wine was zesty, giving off bright apple and citrus flavors. There was a strong floral aroma which added to the experience. For some of our tasters though, the flavor was a little too tart, but we could see how this wine would pair well with either seafood or salty dishes.
