WineScores' Review

Taut, creamy, natural.
This method ancestrale wild ferment sparkling wine is made from organically grown Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Gamay grown in the Vantage Point Vineyard in Kaleden.
Buchanan describes his small cuvee wines as: sustainable, honest and progressive, producing wines with personality and a purity of flavour.
He uses indigenous yeast, minimal amounts of sulfites, no enzymes and no temperature control; they are unfined with little to no filtration.
It suggests lemon-lime, beeswax and yellow fruit with leesy undertones of bread dough on the nose. It's dry and restrained with fine intermittent bubbles. Flavours suggest mineral/wet stone, lemon and tealeaf; the acid is taut but softened by a creamy texture.

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”.
