WineScores' Review

Waxy, viscous, ripe. Single varietal Semillion in the Okanagan is a rarity, yet this is one of Michael Bartier’s flagship wines, he's been making it for several years now. Grown on the Black Sage Terrace in Oliver (Bartier's estate) is 100% Sem.
With age comes unity in Semillon and this 2015 is showing that. It was aged 4 months in stainless and the rest in bottle.
Ripe is my first note; stewed peaches, beeswax, applesauce, water chestnuts, lemongrass and tangerine cream aromas lead to a succulent and equally evolved palate. Warm honey, sweaty fruit, lemon oil and herbs with a boozy concentrationa nd notable viscosity. Overall it's balanced and a very special bottle.

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.
