WineScores' Review

Tart, peachy, pristine.
The Winemaker's Cut wines come from just south of Oliver. In the process there are no pesticides or herbicides used in their vineyards, which means their focus leans toward natural wines. Ideally, in the winery, they use only native yeast, no, or minimal fining (only bentonite and time), and very light or no filtration at all.
There's not a lot of "green" notes in this vintage, it's peachy and honeyed with lime and some not atypical sweaty aromas. The palate is tangy and pristine and laden with lime and pomelo flavours dripping in honey. An enjoyable white with a tart clean finish.

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.
