WineScores' Review

Purity, berry, fresh.
An estate blend of Pinot Noir, Marechal Foch, Gew and Pinot Gris grown in BC's newest sub-GI, this natural-esque wine was made by pressing-off the Pinot and Foch, then de-stemmed whole-berry Gewurz and Pinot Gris were added to the red juice. Averill Creek explains this as a red ferment in essence, but with a cap of white berries. Approximately once daily the cap was punched down. After pressing off it was left in tank on its primary lees until bottling. There were no yeast, nutrients, enzymes, or sulphites added; the wine is also unfiltered and unfined.
The colour of pomegranate juice it delivers wild red berries, tealeaf, bitter orange and vague herbal notes. It has a slight prickle on the tongue, has impressive extraction and is all berry, berry, berry on the palate. Very nice acidity and purity.

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”.
