WineScores' Review

Lovely, slick, balanced.
This classic Pinot Gris is hand harvested from chalky-clay and limestone soils in the AOC Alsace. It was aged on fine less for four months before an additional 5 months in vats prior to bottling. If you've fallen out of love with Gris in recent years, it's time to step back and visit the section marked Alsace your wine store.
Warm creamed pears, chamomile tea, lime, pink grapefruit and honey aromas are grounded with notes of smoked cremini mushrooms.
It's off-dry with a lovely weight and slick texture; it has wonderful fruit expression and spot-on acidity for balance.
Pair: Munster Cheese with fennel seeds, salmon, mushroom wellington, flavourful Asian dishes or holiday ham or turkey.

Pairs Great with Gone Crackers Roasted Shallot & Herb

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”.
