WineScores' Review

Lively, slick, potent.
This dry reserve tier Riesling is made entirely of Fort Berens Estate fruit from the Dry Creek Vineyard the Fraser Canyon, in Lillooet. It was naturally fermented and aged in French oak according to the bottle but the website says it was aged in stainless.
More reminiscent of the Pfalz than say, Mosel this is a wine with power. It is ntensely scented with peaches and apples along with honey, wildflowers and preserved lemons. Expect a potent white that is expressive and with concentrated flavours of lemon preserves and green apples. Slick and lengthy, it has a mouthwatering finish.


 
Recommended Pairings
Seafood/Fish, White Meat Chicken/Pork, GONE CRACKERS, Appetizers

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.
