Price: $9.29Count Karolyi Gruner Veltliner

Amongst cork dork Gruner is hip and worthy of many a lavish superlative. However outside of that world Gruner is not very well understood or often enjoyed. So when I say a Gruner at under $10 and from Hungary I just had to try it.

Gruner at its essence is like a Riesling and shows peach, pear and citrus and some pretty good spicy-ness.

I enjoyed this wine and it certainly delivered on its price promise. The nose shows pears, apricots and melons and finish shows some spice.

For $9.29 this is a pretty great white wine buy and I really enjoyed it with white fish like cod and halibut, or even prawns on a fresh citrusy salad.

Score: 7.5 ~ Over Delivers

Purchased at BC Liquor Stores
