WineScores' Review

Complex, patisserie, lively.
Now a stand alone (no longer under the Sumac Ridge label) the Steller's Jay Brut is a cuvee (blend) of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, made in the traditional method. This BC bubbly has wonderful complexity and you can expect a nose of hazelnut praline, golden fruits, exotic citrus and honeysuckle blossoms and toasted brioche. The palate is equally nutty and complex with a kiss of sweetness to pop the fruit. It boasts a fine bead (bubble) and creamy texture followed by a long and lively finish. Elegant with impressive consistency of price and quality.
Pair: Savoury and salty snacks, shellfish, roast chicken or holiday turkey, smoked cheeses

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Parmesan & Rosemary

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”.
