WineScores' Review

Slick, tangy, delicious.
This vintage of Michael Bartier's consistently outstanding pink is made from 38% Merlot, 33% Chardonnay and 29% Gewurztraminer hand harvested from the estate Cerquiera Vineyard on the Black Sage Terrace in Oliver, BC and their estate vineyard in Summerland. The cuvee spent 4 months in stainless steel sitting on the lees.
Coppery-pink it's a ray of sunshine in the glass and delivers crab apples and peach stone, tangerine and delicate undertones of summer berries and exotic spice. Seamless and slick--almost creamy on the tongue, it rolls out flavours of red berries, apple skin and tealeaf which culminate in a tangy/cedar-y finish.
Just the perfect kind of dry and utterly delicious.

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”.
