WineScores' Review

New, lively, creamy.
Just released, this 2017 traditional method fizz is a joint effort between Hawksworth Restaurant Group's Wine Directors' Bryant Mao and Chris Rielly, and Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards. Made from estate Greata Ranch Vineyard (located between Summerland and Peachland, along Hwy 97), fruit it's a Chardonnay dominant bubbly blended with 25% Pinot Noir and 2% Meunier and is aptly named H's Brut. Expect crunchy orchard fruits, wildflower honey and lemon meringue aromas emerge on the palate alongside vague brioche and bread dough notes. It’s a dry, lively bubble, nicely constructed with a fine bead and snappy finish.
Available at Hawksworth restaurants.

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”.
