WineScores' Review

Honey, tangy, woven. Discovering a single varietal Semillion in the Okanagan is a rarity, yet this is one of Michael Bartier’s flagship wines. It is precise and racy as expected, but unlike its counterparts in the Hunter Valley, Australia, this one drinks great upon release.
Aromas of straw flowers, lime, beeswax and pink grapefruit are tightly woven with mineral notes. It has just a kiss of sweetness to pop the fruit on the palate; honeyed and zesty is has excellent concentration and a long lip-smacking finish. A perfect partner for seafood, ramen noodles, or pour alongside fresh summer salads.
*As reviewed in Vines Magazine, summer 2018.

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”.
