WineScores' Review

Natural, zesty, creamy.
Pursuing a sense of place and embracing vintage variation, Free Form wines are made from organic grapes, native yeast and are free of additives. These wines are fermented in concrete tanks or clay amphorae. Extended skin contact is used, followed by a gentle pressing and further rest before bottling. They are free of rough handling and commercial additives, and contain little to no sulfites.
The Vin Gris is whole bunch pressed organic Pinot Noir from Garnet Valley Ranch remains white due to no skin contact between juice and skins. It was fermented and aged in concrete tanks.
Star fruit and dusty red berries, tealeaf, orange rind and crushed stone flavours lead to a zesty palate. Dry with a creamy textural weight (thanks to lees aging) it's a restrained wine with suggestions of earth, mineral and citrus.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
