WineScores' Review

Complex, persistent, creamy.
From the historic Greata Ranch vineyard located between Summerland and Peachland, along Hwy 97, andd owned by the Fitzpatrick family, this traditional method fizz is made with the same philosophy as smaller batch Grower Champagnes are: entirely estate fruit.
Made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Meunier, it is matured on lees in bottle for 24 months it offers aromas of apple biscuits and summer berries, pears drizzled with honey, lively lemon and yeasty undertones. Creamy golden fruit lines the palate; it has attractive autolytic notes and a fine bead. Weight and complexity with freshness and persistence.
Second Review: July 2021
Loads of citrus peel aromas here, which are layered with yellow plums, golden delicious apples and bread dough. Exactly so, the palate is zesty yet leesy and creamy with nice complexity and persistence.

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.
