Nautilus Gruner Veltliner, 2015

A bottle of Nautilus in BC.  Will wonders never cease?

 

Is it their straightforward and nearly savoury Sauv Blanc?  No.  Is it their charming Chardonnay?  Not a chance.  Is it perhaps their pitch perfect Pinot?  As if.  Is it on the rare chance their hard to find sparkling?  You make me laugh.  No, it’s their Gruner.

 

But do you know what?  Nautilus makes a lot of good wine and this is no exception.  I’m not sure I prefer it to the Culmina, which is about five dollars less, but it’s a really lively, sharp and tangy refreshing white that deserves some attention.  Apple blossoms, apple skin, tart on the finish, with a bit of a bite.  Extremely food friendly.  Seafood starter anyone?

 

Price: $34.50 at Marquis.

 

Market Liquidity: A lesser wine from an accomplished vineyard.
