WineScores' Review

Classic, precise, taut.
Established in 2001, with a first vintage in 2003, Noble Ridge Vineyard & Winery is located on 24-acres in Okanagan Falls and is owned by Jim and Leslie D’Andreas. This The One is one of three sparkling wines they currently make. It's a traditional Method Sparkling Brut this outstanding offering is made of Chardonnay (77%) and Pinot Noir, which was cellared for 47 months en tirage (on lees).
It is a taut and complex bubbly, with classic leesy/autolytic notes layered with golden fruits, crushed stone, toasted nuts, and smoked lemony aromas. Razor sharp acidity cuts through creaminess, citrus peel and chalk and oyster shell flavours dominate the palate. Precise, taut and classic.

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”.
