WineScores' Review

Substance, slick, personality.
Quartz & Yarrow wines, produced by Phantom Creek in Oliver, are named for two types of biodynamic preparations. Yarrow is naturally high in sulpher, which stimulates and detoxifies soil. Crushed quartz is used to light energy and photosynthesis.

This Chardonnay dominant white blend from sustainably grown vineyards and it was aged entirely in stainless. The capsule is made from sugar cane the bottle has a slightly lower weight and the label comes from tree free renewable paper.
Creamed honey and unripe quince aromas are layered with yellow apples. salted ginger, griddled peaches and candle wax. It is slick and weighty with impressive concentration and flavours of stone fruits, preserved salted lemons and grapefruit zest and exotic spice notes on the finish. It's a white with substance and personality.
IMO it has a very Viognier-like character.

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”.
