WineScores' Review

Leesy, creamy, fresh.
This is an estate field blend of 40% Pinot Gris, 40% Gewurztraminer and 20% Chardonnay grown on glacial stone and loam soils. The components were hand harvested, sorted and foot stomped, left on skins for 8 hours and then whole-bunch pressed without sulphur. Fermentation by indigenous yeast was completed in old French oak barriques. The wine was left to age on primary lees, without battonage until just before bottling.
There were no yeast, nutrients, enzymes, or sulphites added; the wine is also unfiltered and unfined.
Leesy notes are layered with creamed yellow apples, honeydew melon, cedar and dried wildflowers. The palate is fresh with a creamy edge and is flavoured with charred lemons and tealeaf. Solid.

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.
