KITSILANO — Eater Wine Correspondent, Kurtis Kolt is responsible for the two very delicious BC wines made with Grüner Veltliner on the menu at Maenam which you can now try as a mini-flight $14 for two 3oz pours to see how they pair with Angus An's stellar food. Kolt says: "Grüner Veltliner is Austria's signature, aromatic white grape. The De Vine Vineyards' take is slightly off-dry, loaded with lime, marzipan and nougat, where Culmina Family Estate Winery do a bone-dry ode to grapefruit and white pepper with fantastic minerality and acidity." The flight's being offered over the next few days; go get it! [EW]
