WineScores' Review

Cloudy, creamy, rustic.
This rustic orange wine is made from blend of co-fermented Viognier, Gewurztraminer and Gruner Veltliner it went through a natural secondary fermentation 11-months in while aging in new Russian oak. In my opinion, orange wines of this type are best served by aromatic varieties and makes for a more unique product.
Buchanan describes his small cuvee wines as: sustainable, honest and progressive, producing wines with personality and a purity of flavour.
Buchanan uses indigenous yeast, minimal amounts of sulfites, no enzymes and no temperature control; they are unfined with little to no filtration.
This skin-contact (for 2-3 weeks) orange wine offers aromas of dried powdery flowers, cedar chips and orange slices, dried apricot, fleur de sel and smoked spices. Expect flavours of bitter orange and tealeaf, wild grass and a suggestion of spice. Cloudy with a creamy weight, it maintains freshness throughout.

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”.
